Stallings Center, 4300 St. Claude
Comments: The building is very boxy and unappealing. While the intent may be to re-create an old brick warehouse, of which there are few in Bywater, this comes off like an institution that lacks adequate openings to allow natural light so there is a sense of outdoors from the inside. There is no doubt that there is room for improvement in this design. Perhaps abandon the faux warehouse look and do something more contemporary.
