Subway

 Before and after renovation picture of the Subway restaurant building


118 W. Erwin


Remodeling probably sometime in the 50s or 60s left this building with inappropriate window openings and bark-faced brick. Once the building came into new ownership, the inappropriate materials were removed. Though the historic fabric of the building was gone, the original context and lines were re-interpreted with modern materials. Note that Subway also worked within the downtown design feel and opted for corner-mounted neon signage rather than back-lit plastic.
