Excelsior Springs Hall of Waters Historic District Design Guidelines

Design Guidelines and Preservation Planning

STRATA Architecture Inc. was selected by the City of Excelsior Springs, Missouri to create and publish Design Guidelines for the Hall of Waters Historic District. This included surveying and assessing the existing buildings to define their architectural styles and important characteristics. The document will serve the City and building owners as a guide for the rehabilitation, restoration & preservation of their historic structures. The document will also guide new in-fill design and construction for both commercial and residential properties within the district to ensure sensitive design to complement the historic context. As designers of the guidelines, we are responsible for fostering the community consensus for revitalizing of their downtown through public education.
