What material says "Plumbing"?

Copper, of course!

Yesterday I photographed the newly remodeled Reeves-Wiedeman Company building ("Plumbing Supplies For Contractors and Industry") at 3635 Main, KCMO, for their tax credit application. Helix was the architecture firm involved, and I really like their work.

A spectacular feature is this skylight/atrium lined with copper located over the order counter.

The entire elevator bay is clad in copper as well.

The elevator bay is mirrored by a copper wall in the office lobby.

A stairway surrounds the elevator bay providing a dramatic blast of sleek copper color. Nice!
