Located at the existing Belknap Parking Garage, the new bus station was constructed to accommodate student commuters that would park at the garage and take the campus shuttle to class. The full height 1940's Greyhound bus wall graphic is the highlight of the space viewed through the glass storefront windows, giving it a "jewel-like" quality within the mass of the main garage structure.


Awards / Recognition: 

AIA KY. - Merit Award for Excellence

in Architectural Design

The project, a Bell/Clock Tower and Plaza, is located on the Western Kentucky University campus. The construction funds were donated for a war memorial to honor all American servicemen and in memory of the donor’s brother, Sgt. Robert A. Guthrie, who was killed in combat during the Korean War. A life-sized, freestanding, cast bronze sculpture of Sgt. Guthrie is an integral part of the plaza design. The Tower is 125’ in height and provides a strong visual landmark for the entire campus and surrounding neighborhood. The adjacent Courtyard and Academic Building are concurrent phases of one total project.

Located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the Aviation Heritage Park was created to recognize achievements by local aviators and to educate future generations about the stories and importance of South Central Kentucky to aviation history. AJRC produced the original master plan for the park which was designed and built as a large circular form to instantly create a sense of a visually-completed space but allows for future aircraft to be easily added. Currently there are five aircraft on display, including the Phantom 550, flown in the Vietnam War by General Dan Cherry. 

As part of the original master plan and the park’s desire for providing more educational programs and displays, a museum is being planned. AJRC has developed schematic design drawings for a new 11,000-SF structure evoking the desired art deco style of WWII era hangars. The museum is planned to provide display space, classrooms, offices, and a workshop for maintenance.

The Aviation Heritage Park exists because of the continued financial support of people like you. We appreciate how you help us honor our region’s heroes. Please consider making a donation. Click here to donate now!

The Healthy House is a 21st-century shotgun house with a focus on fostering healthy living and community. It will advance the traditional family shotgun home by providing a model for both present and future living. The Healthy House will be a mixed-use building consisting of a farmstand, teaching kitchen, office, that promote the importance of a healthy community. It will be a contemporary interpretation of the traditional shotgun house that includes sustainable features such as passive solar design, abundant daylighting, natural ventilation, living roofs, and recycled building materials. The property will accommodate a local organization, Louisville Grows, dedicated to promoting urban agriculture and forestry. Healthy House will be located in the Portland neighborhood and is currently under construction.
