Rapid City, SD
w/ Fred Thurston Architecture
Originally built as the Casper Supply Company in 1946, the building at 415 Main Street is more familiar as Parts Central. Located in downtown Rapid City, the Parts Central Building is a prime example of the late western Art Deco movement. The building has many Art Deco characteristics: flat wall surfaces, decorative brickwork, and pilasters that rise above the roofline. As with many buildings of this style, one can see elements of the Moderne Style through the rounded exterior windows and glass block.
Both the main floor and basement are being developed as leasable office space. We seek to retain key historical elements of the building while creating flexibility and incorporating more natural light into the space. We are adding a second main entrance and introducing new windows, skylights and transoms.
