Our Thoughts

Week 11 – Moving on Up

15 South Main Street was a great office for A3G!  We fell in love with the space when we first visited it while still under construction and saw the exposed brick walls and large storefront window.  We were looking for a place to make us more a part of downtown Liberty and it fit the […]

Week 10 – Check In

The last three months have flown by!  We’ve been hard at work trying to stay on top of projects while managing construction on our new office. We are extremely grateful for all of the hard work that our contractors have done! We are now rounding the bend and can see the finish line! The walls […]

Week 9 – Windows

Windows are such an important part of any space and preserving historic wood windows is a big part of any restoration project. Windows allow light and airflow to enter a space as well as give a connection to the outside, which is why getting the windows operational is critical to allow fresh air when needed […]

Week 8 – Lighting

For our new space we carefully considered the lighting for each room.  This was probably the hardest part of the design to get together. While there are millions of options out there, finding something that fits the building, our taste and the budget proved a challenge.  We wanted the new lighting to match as well […]

Week 7 – Hardware = Hard Choices

Selecting hardware can be hard!   This week we worked on finding the right hardware for our new space. We wanted something with a historic feel but it has to be durable enough for a commercial setting and meet the current code guidelines for operation. We had to use several different finishes for the hardware to […]

Week 6 – Rolling With the Punches

You know what they say about making a first impression, right?  You only get one chance!  When designing the entry for our new office, our goal is to make the space with its original staircase a show piece.  We began with a patterned traditional wallcovering that started to drive the rest of the aesthetic.  Unfortunately, […]

Week 5 – Uncovering History

Working in old buildings can be challenging, but it is also rewarding and exciting. Often you uncover treasures from the buildings past lives as you work to update the space.  We knew when we started this project that we wanted to maintain the historic character as much as possible. Keeping the hardwood floors, removing drop […]

Week 4 – Demolition

Before the new construction can begin we have to get our hands dirty! From sampling paint colors to ripping out suspended ceilings, we have been hard at work doing demolition at our new space. We tore out the wall between two additions in the back to open up space for our library which will now […]

Weeks 2 & 3 – The Kitchen

When you create a new space, you have to do your best to solve the problems in the old space. One of the challenges we have with our current office is the lack of separation between our desks and the break area. If one person wants to heat up food in the microwave the rest […]

Week 1 – Conference Room

The biggest thing missing from the current A3G office is a conference room.  Not that we don’t love our open studio, but it can be challenging to work when there is a group meeting in the middle of the office.  In our new location we are designing a space that allows for us to present […]

Our Next Big Journey

Today marks the first step in the next big adventure for A3G Architects… We are moving into our own stand alone building!! We wanted to find a long term location that would truly tell our story. We enjoy working  on residential and commercial projects, and we have a passion for historical buildings, so what better […]

Women Helping Women

In conversations with other businesses and owners this year, I noticed that there was a reoccurring comment regarding the need for women business owners to connect in the Kansas City area.  As a woman and small-business owner, those comments struck home.  Maybe it was time to expand the support for women-owned businesses outside of their […]

What’s Happening on the Square?

If you’ve been in downtown Liberty in the last six months or so, you know it’s not easy to navigate with the infrastructure work and the closed area due to the May collapse. But, progress is definitely being made. At A3G Architects, we like to spread good news, so here’s the “down-low” on both projects. The improvements to […]
