Located at the corner of Rose and Vine streets in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, this is without a doubt one of the boldest and most intricate projects we’ve had the pleasure to work on, both in design and the business for which it is designed. Great time and energy was taken to carefully incorporate all of these functional elements into the 9,100 square foot existing space. 301 East Vine Street (originally MIX ON VINE) is a mixed-use (no pun intended) “gallery-esque” space housing several different functional elements and creating lifestyle options for Lexington’s exciting, evolving urban community. The street level loft-like space is home to a wide variety of functions:
- a large contemporary art gallery
- a dance-based workout studio
- an artful suspension training studio for silk yoga hammock workouts and TRX Training
- a beauty blow and braid bar
- a coffee and treat bar.

“Amazing! An intimate family gathering with [i/A] has resulted in one of the most rewarding creative collaborations of my career. My vision for Mix on Vine grew and evolved as we went… together. From the initial drawings to the day to day management of the most intricate details of the project [i/A] has been passionately involved, made good solid decisions, and [have] been professional and well organized team leaders. I truly believe that this concept, which is radically progressive, would not be the gloriously inspiring, trend setting space that it is today had we not selected [i/A] as our architect. Some things really do happen for a reason.”

“I thought I knew exactly what I wanted in design before I hired [i/A], but after I gave [them] my sketches, [they] produced something much better than I imagined. [They] have been on top of the job every step of the way, strong on details, efficient with their time and my money and a real pleasure and delight to work with. I look forward to finding a new project to work on with [them].”
