Saving the Sullivan

Rogers Krajnak Architects recently presented a preview of the proposed design for the restoration of the Louis Sullivan Building of Newark, a national landmark originally designed in 1914 by noted American Architect, Louis H. Sullivan.  Peter Krajnak provided an overview of Sullivan’s career, the 102-year history of the Louis Sullivan Building of Newark, an explanation of the design process, and a flythrough of RKA’s 3D computer model of the project.  The project will preserve the building’s historic significance while transforming the former bank building into a future Visitors Center for Licking County.  The presentation to a gathering of invited guests was held on the stage of the historic Midland Theatre in downtown Newark, Ohio.

Renovation Completed on "Sophisticated Cottage."

Considering the unique scale of this house, which seems smaller than it really is, Rogers Krajnak Architects designed the renovations of this home in the spirit of a “sophisticated cottage”.   New hardwood floors, doors, and painted trim throughout the first floor of the home unified the previously incongruent spaces of the Kitchen, Living Room, Dining Room, and Family Room.  The Kitchen was upgraded with new quartz countertops and a new butcherblock topped island.  The Family Room was transformed with a new dormer that brings additional daylight into this space, and the warmth of a new brick wall.  New fixtures, wainscot, and tile in the expanded second floor Bathroom and new built-in cabinets and window seat in the Master Bedroom enhanced these private spaces.  The new paver driveway created a pedestrian scaled entrance and enhanced the curb appeal of the home.
