01 Nov Feature Project: The Brass on Baltimore, Kansas City
Our feature project is the sensational event space, Brass on Baltimore in Kansas City
The Brass on Baltimore is a unique event space, which seamlessly combines the old world charm of a historic social club with the modern luxury of society today.
The Kansas City Club as it was formerly know was originally formed in 1882, one of the premier social clubs in the Midwest. Like many clubs at the time the purpose was to cultivate social and business relationships between leading businessmen in Kansas City. So historic is the building and architecture that is is appears on the National Register of Historic Places. The building was designed in the Gothic Revival style by the Kansas City architectural firm of Smith, Rea and Lovitt, construction of the Kansas City Club Building was started in 1918 and completed in 1922.
The club has now been given a new lease of life to create a unique event space by the Kansas City based architects, Helix Architecture & Design. Helix have beautifully mixed both old and new in the club to create a luxury event space, whilst retaining the history of the building and looking to the future with contemporary elements. The majority of the spaces have retained the period features from the early 1900’s where hand-hewn walnut, carved stone, stained glass, and gilded plaster were often used.
The contemporary elements of the building are exemplified on the fantastic roof terrace with expansive views across the city, which also features a Solus Elevated Halo fire pit to create the perfect location for cocktails and canapes, an after dinner drink or a quiet spot for a bride and groom to reflect on their special day.
The Elevated Halo fire pit is ideal for commercial outdoor spaces like the roof terrace at The Brass on Baltimore. With their clean profiles and soft curves the Halo Elevated fit well into a wide variety of outdoor environments, from traditional to modern. Both sizes offer the warmth of fire along with the functionality of a table and can be used in conjunction with standard seating. The Elevated Halo compliments the contemporary style of the roof terrace at The Brass on Baltimore with the historic architecture as a sensational backdrop.
