Rundell Ernstberger Associates, a landscape architecture office based in Muncie, Indiana, will be opening a Louisville office on West Main Street between 6th and 7th streets. The office is known for such projects as Campus Martius Park in downtown Detroit and is scheduled to open in September. GBBN Architects, based in Cincinnati, OH, is opening an office on the same block; in fact, in the next building over.
Construction has been going on to transform the original Museum Plaza showroom into an architect’s office. Here’s what the company says about their impending opening:
The saying is “Louisville, Do Something Original,” and that’s exactly what GBBN Architects intends to do when it opens its doors for business at 609 West Main Street in August.
The 50-year-old, international healthcare design firm is expanding its practice to Louisville, and bringing nearly 2,000 healthcare projects worth of experience with them.
“I’m thrilled to be able to bring our healthcare design expertise to my hometown,” said David Proffitt, AIA, who will oversee the day-to-day operations of GBBN Louisville. “We’ve assembled a team of immensely talented healthcare planners and designers who have experience both local, regionally and internationally.”
The addition of these two firms takes the tally of architecture-related offices on this single block along to seven; several additional offices are located in adjacent blocks as well. When combined with the plethora of creative advertising firms in the area, art museums, and Museum Plaza with the University of Louisville’s MFA program, West Main will continue to be a creative asset for Louisville.
