530 West Main Hotel Concept

2023 AIA Merit Awards for Excellence in Architectural Design

This 220-key hotel and multi-use building includes a ground floor restaurant, coffee shop, and art gallery.  A bar/lounge, conference center, gym/spa, and pool occupy the street frontage in a 5-story podium.  There are also multiple rooftop gathering spaces and a basement speakeasy.  

This project stitches together the urban fabric and re-establishes the corner condition to the Northwest while filling a void in an area known for its collection of 4-to-5-story buildings dating to the 1800’s and early 1900’s.  

“The reference in form to the adjacent building fabric helps a much larger building connect within its context. and see how it would mature and strengthen.”

SmART Bus Stop #2

2020 AIA Merit Awards for Excellence in Architectural Design

In May 2017 Luckett & Farley was awarded two of four SmART stop bus stops by the Louisville Metro Housing Authority, including one at the intersection of 18th and Muhammad Ali Boulevard. The surrounding neighborhood at this intersection makes this transit stop a major point of access into the core of the Russell neighborhood and is critical to the area's success.

“SmART Stop #2 captured the attention of the jury with a design guided by a synthesis of function and ecological purpose. Bus stops are an important part of public transportation infrastructure, and this design elevates the typology while sitting comfortably in the neighborhood. The jury appreciated how the lean material palette reinforces the conceptual clarity and provides a sculptural expression of the bus stop.”

Rabbit Hole Distillery

2020 AIA Merit Awards for Excellence in Architectural Design

The Rabbit Hole Tasting Room and Event Space is an exciting addition to the brand’s Henry County campus. Currently the site of their cutting-edge steel rickhouses, also designed by Luckett & Farley, this site is an extension of the bourbon’s urban distilling campus in downtown Louisville.

“The Rabbit Hole Distillery submission highlights the importance of architectural representation. Though unbuilt, the beautiful presentation illustrates a sensitive and productive combination of building and landscape to convey a strong sense of place. A rich sequence of experiences produces a convincing statement about how context and culture can be celebrated through refined architectural expression.”
