REyNOlds is a proposed renovation of the two Reynolds warehouses on the north-western edge of the University of Kentucky Campus. The end design is proposed to house the entiret of the College of Design and its future growth. The site is at the confluence of 4 major masterplan developments, the Newtown Pike extension, the Sazaki Masterplan and the Downtown Development masterplan and the development of a pedestrian greenway along a disused railroad.
The original warehouses were meant for storing and drying tobacco. The main goal was to insert interventions that both altered the building to be an enjoyable space for people and to be a facilitator of dynamic energy that would promote a healthy and enjoyable studio environment and culture.
