The $21 million renovation and expansion of the Kansas City Police Headquarters was featured in the Kansas City Star today.

“We’ll bring it back to the original, and the ornamental crown molding on the ceiling will be restored,” said Reeves Wiedeman, a principal at Helix Architecture & Design, the project architect. “All will be restored to the original design.”

Color + Couture!

Helix recently participated in Kansas City’s 6th Annual IIDA Color+Couture Fashion show, where A+D firms are paired with a manufacturer to produce a runway outfit.

The event was held a few weeks ago (Friday, Sept. 23, 2011) at the Kansas City Convention Center Ballroom. Helix was paired with Patcraft carpet and charged with creating an outfit with a musical as inspiration. Helix chose Moulin Rouge!

Here’s our 20-word description:

Equal parts circus and extravagance, a modern take on can-can inspired by the place where it all began: Moulin Rouge.

For our dress creation, we used unbacked carpet in red and dark grey tones, then added netting, trimmings, grommets, and ribbon to make it runway-worthy. Our creation turned out AMAZING! (if we might say so ourselves …) Who would’ve thought carpet would so readily turn into couture!

A few production photos – our Helix team hard at work with sewing, dress fittings and train studies.

Here’s Carly Pumphrey (our lovely model) with Katie Vossman.

Carly again, also a diligent team member, with Sara Fernandez Cendon, working on the train.

Sarah Godfrey (that’s me) at the sewing machine.

And Carly on the runway!
