“The Wrecking Bar” in jeopardy. Before.

While the Inman Park and Little Five Points neighborhoods have enjoyed an influx of creative, intown oriented people for decades, many of those years were sad and lonely for the historic Victor H. Kriegshaber House on Moreland Avenue. Another beautiful Atlanta mansion fending off decay, developers without a clue, and perhaps destruction. Luckily, the house was beautifully transformed from a relic of the past to a bustling brewpub and super cool event space.

Post historic restoration, looking good. After.

The renovations were designed by Bizot Architects and wrapped up last June. Since then the Wrecking Bar Brew Pub has enjoyed great success, and the Marianna Event Space has become one of Atlanta’s best places for parties and celebrations.

Since the building reopened last year, Bizot Architects has been bestowed a 2012 Preservation Award for Excellence in Rehabilitation from the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and a 2012 Award of Excellence from the Atlanta Urban Design Commission, and now its time to share a bit with the public.

 

On July 21st Bizot Architects, and the Atlanta chapter of the AIA, will host a tour of the property for the preservation minded, the architecturally interested, and the simply curious. You’ll get a hands-on look at the process involved in saving this historic building, and the inspiration of the architects.

Space is limited so please RSVP at AIAatlantaTours@gmail.com, and be sure to look at other tours they have going on around the city.
