THE JAMES LEE HOUSE

WHAT

Historical Renovation

Bed and Breakfast

WHERE

Memphis, TN

WHEN

2014

Jose and Jennifer Velazquez, along with their investment partners JW and Kathy Gibson, worked with Fleming Architects to completely restore and transform the historic James Lee House in Victorian Village into a five-star Bed and Breakfast. The mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, consists of the original 1848 two-story farmhouse built by William Harsson, and two additions, one in 1853 and one in 1873, by Charles Goyer. Charles Goyer sold the home to James Lee in 1890, and later, Lee gave the home to his daughter, Rosa, who donated it to the city of Memphis to create the James Lee Arts Academy. The Arts Academy became the Memphis College of Arts, and the house served as the original location of the school. The College relocated to Overton Park in 1959, leaving the James Lee house vacant for 55 years until its restoration in 2014. For Fleming, the highest priority throughout the transformation was to maintain the historical integrity of the structure, yet incorporate state of the art energy efficiency, modern amenities, and meet current code requirements. Historic decorative elements such as the plaster moldings, ceiling frescos, original hand-carved wood doors, tall windows, and the grand staircase were repaired and restored to qualify the home for Historic Preservation designation by the National Park Service. Once the restoration was complete, the 5 suites in the Bed and Breakfast were named after the mansion’s previous owners or members of Velazquez family.

Jose and Jennifer bought the James Lee House from the City of Memphis for $1.00.

 

WRIGHT CONSTRUCTION

WHAT

Office Building

WHERE

Collierville, TN

Fleming Architects worked closely with Wright Construction to design a office building that would be representative of the company’s high quality. An open floor plan pairs with a multi-doored conference room in the core of the facility, allowing for collaborative work throughout the office. Private offices take up each of the four corners of the main area, and the back doors of the office lead into the garage and workroom of the facility.

2017

 

MERCEDES BENZ SHOWROOM

WHAT

Dealership addition

WHERE

Memphis, TN

WHEN

2009

Mercedes Benz of Memphis recruited Fleming Architects to help design an addition to their existing dealership location in East Memphis. The addition incorporated Mercedes Benz’s standard corporate details such as castellated beams, blue portal entrances, and canted glazing that emphasizes transparency. The corporate prototype prioritizes convenience and comfort and has an overall modern and industrial feel. The new space includes an enlarged showroom, offices and conference room space, and new carwash and detail bays.

The renovation incorporated the Mercedes Benz USA “Autohaus” design, which was established in their flagship showroom in Manhattan.
