The unbuilt prototype Encore Mid-City was developed as a sustainable,
intergenerational, mixed-used independent living community with a goal
of allowing seniors to age in place. The community itself is anchored at
each end with brick buildings that resemble local warehouses, while between them is a more modern-looking wing that connects the two at an
angle, creating a more contemporary context. That angle also resulted
in the creation of a funnel-shaped plaza on the ground level that serves
as a gateway for residents and welcomes in the surrounding community with public-accessible amenities. Numerous roof decks offer varied
opportunities for social interaction, as well. Together, these approaches
help to deliver spaces reminiscent of market-rate urban apartments.
Inside, an art gallery is programmed to display pieces from local artists,
traveling exhibits, and artists-in-residence. Also included are four distinct
dining components, including a fine dining restaurant featuring produce
and seafood harvested from a 5,000-square-foot aquaponic farm adjacent to the kitchen.

An adaptive reuse of a five-story 1980s commercial office building, Anthology of the Plaza presented the design team with
numerous challenges. For starters, the original building exterior
was defined by a monolithic brick aesthetic with heavily tinted
windows and a concealed main entry. The design was updated
to blend with the Moorish architecture of Kansas City's nearby
Country Club Plaza by reconstructing the fenestration and adding white residential-style windows, lightening the brick color,
and adding a porte cochere. Community decks and balconies
were also added to provide views and access to the outdoors,
even for dining. Finally, to address the structure's unique building
shape, deep footprint, existing interior columns, and segmented
floors from its original office use, the team created more than
40 different layouts for its 83 apartments. Utilizing the available
space while staying within the programmed unit sizes, long and
narrow Southern-style shotgun homes were created. Due to
those restricted unit layouts, entries from the corridors couldn't
be recessed, so designers also added wall coverings and moldings around each door for visual interest and cueing.
