Built in 1886, the Leavenworth Building 19 in Leavenworth, Kansas doesn’t look much different on the outside. It has the same Romanesque Revival architecture, the same charming red brick exterior. But that is the idea. The whole project took 14 months to complete. With the help of private funds from the Veterans Administration’s Enhanced Use Lease program, the construction team preserved the historic building while making it an ideal up-to-date office space.
Chicago’s Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture restored the wood paneling, plaster ceilings, and marble and mosaic flooring. roman and williams Buildings and interiors, new york, pro- vided the project’s interior design, including furniture, fixtures and equipment for hotel rooms, public spaces and restaurants.
