The Jefferson Park Apartments in Louisville, KY, is a new multi-family residential development equipped with 29,120 total sq. ft. of Everlast® Advanced Composite Siding by Chelsea Building Products.
Jefferson Park Apartments is comprised of two buildings — a two-story with 16 units and a three-story with 24 units — in addition to parking garages built for residents. The owners chose Everlast® in three rich colors – Chestnut, Flagstone, and Sand Dune – providing a harmonious blend of natural, cool, and warm tones.
The multiple colors complement each other and give the apartments a diverse aesthetic. The project team was able to choose their colors and – since Everlast® requires no caulking or painting – have it delivered and ready to install.

Owensboro is the county seat of Daviess County in north-central Kentucky. Originally part of Shawnee territory, settlers first arrived there in the 1700s. The city played an important role in the Civil War era and served as a key river port that continues to this day. The city’s environs also gave birth to the Bluegrass sound in American music, starting in the 1930s and 1940s.

The one-of-a-kind Ark Encounter project, said to be the largest timber-framed structure in the world, has been completed in Williamstown, KY (40 miles south of Cincinnati, OH).
A family-oriented, historically authentic, and environmentally friendly themed attraction, the Ark Encounter is a to-scale replica of the Biblical Noah’s Ark, which market studies suggest will see 1.2 – 2 million visitors annually. Phase one of the Ark Encounter also has a 1,500 seat restaurant, zip line courses, and a petting zoo. The project began nearly 7 years ago with the planning and permitting process, now the Ark Encounter officially opened on July 7th, 2016.

Children are naturally curious, seeking opportunities to playfully explore while wondering about the magical possibilities of the world around them. Wonder and the process of discovery are fundamental to the mission of a children’s museum and our design strategy. We seek to engage the human minds potential via an innovative architectural expression that activates the senses, ignites imagination, and heightens anticipation of new discoveries revealed as you move through space. One oscillates between interior and exterior mental, physical, and conceptual limits.

A unique client’s vision and openness to abstract symbolism provided EOP Architects the opportunity to transform a long vacant and neglected retail mall into an energized campus with a newfound purpose. Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, requested a contemporary, iconic design that would be welcoming, inspirational and transformational but devoid of any traditional references to Christianity: there are no conventional steeples, crosses, or stained glass windows. However, the design response includes a number of abstract interpretations with references to these elements.
