Stone Place Gardens
Architexas created a restoration plan for historic Stone Street in downtown Dallas. Previously turned into a pedestrian walkway, Stone Street became a dormant public space. Architexas proposed rethinking the side street frontage to engage the pedestrian traffic with retail, restaurants and covered patio sidewalks. A central public gathering plaza was placed at mid-block. The restored side facades of the Sumpter Leggit Building and the former Woolworths Building now complete the full length of the west side of Stone Place Gardens. The side street facades were modified to adapt the street space and meet accessibility standards while still maintaining their historic integrity. In addition to the side facade restorations, the Sumpter Leggit Building and Woolworths Building Street facades were restored and are now occupied by restaurants.
