Welcome to my glorious mess.

The arts in this city are criminally slept on.

Posted in Menefee Winer Design in Atlanta by Dom Brady on July 18, 2008


Lets talk about archietechture alone. My wife and I often just drive around and look at cool buildings. Atlanta has much more to offer than what meets the eye. We ran into Menefee+Winer office on one of our weekly drive-abouts. We were both taken back at the design of the structure. They had preferred parking for green vehicles, and lovely grasses as well. We decided to ask about the office and what they do there. Turns out they are a design firm and they designed their building and workspace. When walking around the city and speaking to people in the design world, you can find out the most intriguing things- things i just assumed weren’t here or didn’t really take a moment to actually think about. We got caught up in this hustle and bustle, but if you have a moment. Just enjoy this city. There are so many interesting stories. We’ll chronicle much of that in our Analogue Atlanta podcast which premiers on VIMBY.com July 31st. It could take years just to talk about the Westsdide: Historic Westside/Howell Mill/Washington Park. Let alone the West End, Downtown, Old Fourth Ward, Cabbage town, etc…

Here is some info about the firm and their Brady avenue project:

Menefee + Winer Architects served as architect, contractor and owner for this project. Located at 1075 Brady Avenue near the Georgia Tech campus, the building is a culmination of 15 years of commitment to thoughtful, detail-oriented, and sustainable design and development. The 4,100 square foot building is an adaptive reuse of a muffler shop. It is accessible to two MARTA bus lines, and within walking distance to several neighborhood restaurants and services. The building is certified LEED® Silver and is the first LEED-NC architect’s office in the state of Georgia.
