The sixteen-story Carnegie Building anchors half a city block on the edge of the historic Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas. A distinctly urban identity fuses easily with elegance typical of Fort Worth’s 19th-century buildings. The building is organized in a classic tripartite, while a carefully considered “plaid” of vertical and horizontal elements emphasizes the towers anchoring the Carnegie’s corners. The center steps back from Third Street, providing a deep sidewalk for future café seating and strengthening the pedestrian character of Fort Worth’s main east-west street. A metal canopy announces the entrance to the building. A step inside reveals a domed lobby with pilasters finished richly in marble and patterned terrazzo providing a signature experience for the downtown.
