This project for Brambier’s began on a paper towel. Mark Brambier visited Looney Ricks Kiss Architecture in Memphis, TN for a Lunch & Learn presentation. Towards the last half, he noticed an architect that came in late. After he completed his presentation, he was asked to stay. They discussed some ideas and she drew her layout on a paper towel to help Mark visualize it. Some great ideas start on napkins and paper towels – and Crosstown was no exception. The completed project was Sears Crosstown in Memphis, TN and was transformed into the Crosstown Councourse.

It’s an old Sears Tower and Warehouse being turned into a multi-use property, with residential, commercial, retail, medical and theater facilities all in the same location. Over the next few months Mark and the team at Brambiers worked closely with the architect on design and specifications.


Crosstown Concourse Memphis

The Product:

This is a back-lit Barrisol Ceiling. The rows of lights coincide with the counter tops, which are old package conveyor rollers from the Sears Warehouse. About eight months later it was turned over to the General Contractor, Grinder Tabor Grinder in Memphis, TN for installation.

The contractor had never used this product before. In the end the project looked great, and all parties involved were very happy with the final product. The Crosstown Concourse is scheduled for its grand opening on August 19, 2017.
