Sometimes it's easy . .

"Go out to a beautiful, impeccably maintained site and try to get some pretty pictures of a spectacular project." Sure, I can do that!

The project was the water tower in Unity Village just outside of Lees Summit, MO. Susan Richards Johnson, & Associates, INC. was tasked with designing 7 floors of usable office space inside the still-functioning water tower, as well as general building restoration and improvements. Their job was hard. I was asked to photograph the finished results. My job was easy.

The footprint of the building measures roughly 30x30 feet, and in that space there is an elevator and two stairways PLUS (now) usable office space on seven floors! It's an amazing building, and due to its location, visible from several miles away.

Yes, it is STILL a water tower! The tank is just below the observation deck.
The office spaces and lobby are surprisingly large, bright, and completely comfortable!
Pretty cool, 'eh?
