The Waterfront Botanical Gardens Ellen T. Leslie Botanical Classrooms project has received the 2022 AIA Kentucky Honor Award.
This project is one of nine that were recognized for excellence in architectural design. The project won under the New Construction: Less Than $5M category.
“This modest project was very artfully sited on a reclaimed landfill, creating an inviting outdoor court with an existing event center while sheltering visitors from the interstate to the south. The simple, gabled rectangular structures complement the free-form event center while tying together with deft use of cedar siding. Community members are invited into the building in several ways, with each perforation allowing views in and out of the slender facility. Durable, unpretentious materials for flooring, framing and skin juxtapose with bursts of color, cleverly imitating the natural grounds. This is a very approachable and lovely project.” -Jury Comment
Shrout Tate Wilson is proud to be a part of this prestigious project.
