Corporate Office

Completion Date:  2019
Location: Little Rock, Arkansas
Architect/Engineer:  Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects

The recently renovated, historic Winchester Building is now home to Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects corporate office.

The 13,000 sf Winchester building was built in 1947 and represents the quintessential architectural design of the forties.

This nostalgic piece of history boasts its original glass block entrance, steel frames and brick façade.  The interior has been beautifully redesigned and renovated to show off the original steel-framed, glass windows that divide the gathering hall and reception area from the large, two-story open-air office space.

A center niche has been carved out to provide a beautiful kitchen with all the modern day amenities one would expect, including two stainless steel refrigerators, two stainless steel microwaves, a stainless steel dishwasher and a stainless steel coffee station. All of this stainless steel is beautifully wrapped in wood-grain cabinetry and accented with matching shelves lined with cups, plates, and glassware. The stone covered island and countertops turn this space into a uniquely inviting area for the Polk Stanley Wilcox staff to refresh and replenish.

The upstairs is comprised of conference/meeting rooms and open view office spaces that overlook the work stations on the main floor. One of the most unique aspects of this space is the original, functioning dumbwaiter with its wheel & sprocket crank shaft that brings back a bit of nostalgia.

The combination of old and new is this beautifully redesigned building is representative of the importance of historic preservation and the necessity of modernization. The new Polk Stanley Wilcox headquarters demonstrates the best of both and East Harding Construction is very proud and grateful to have been a part of bringing the past into the future.
