Interior of County Club Restaurant in Lexington, designed by Guyon Architects and Turner + Guyon Design, Lexington, which received a merit award from the Kentucky Society of Architects. Judge's comments: “Nice to see the investment made to turn an ordinary utilitarian type building into one contributing to the local social and economic community. This is a good project which shows what can be accomplished without over-designing. The jury applauds the designer’s handling of a modest budget and relative impact. Dollars are well spent on this low budget project opening up a wall which effectively extends the footprint of the building. The client’s and architect’s visions for an overlooked neighborhood and garage are commendable and serve as an excellent example for others to follow. Decisions to prioritize the side elevation and open interior to exterior generate additional usable space and strengthen connections to the urban realm.”
