Access Ventures : louisville, kentucky

Background: Access Ventures has been one of the driving forces behind the revitalization of the Shelby Park neighborhood. Their impact investing team focuses on both financial and social investments that create relationships, build businesses, and strengthen neighborhoods. With their need for a permanent office space for the team and casual work culture, they selected a second floor space near a few of their investment properties in the same block.


Concept: The mixed-use building is planned for rotating retail space on the first floor, while the office space on the second will be used for the client. Previously, the second floor was made up of multiple apartment units that were in poor condition. With little to no historic value on the interiors, the space was a blank slate.


Design Detail: Suspended lighting on an angle in the main work room mimics the hard lines of the AV brand while simultaneously providing ambient lighting.


Scope: Design concept, space planning, specifications (materials, finishes, fixtures), digital model
