The vacant former King Louie bowling alley and ice rink were transformed into the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center. Large glass windows were interspersed with the stone work on two sides to allow visitors to see up and into the building at night. Additional windows on the east side give the building an inviting, “jewel box” effect. The building kept its iconic accordion roof, the stonework, front entrance spire and sign.
SK Design Group’s role on the project included site planning and design, stormwater management, utility coordination and design, and site paving and ADA accessible paths. The former steeply sloped parking lot was flattened to provide better accessibility to the building
