Two Generator Studio Projects Selected as Kansas City Business Journal Capstone Award Winners

The Child Protection Center (CPC) office building and CPKC Stadium, both designed by Kansas City-based architecture and interior design firm Generator Studio, have been selected as Kansas City Business Journal Capstone Award winners.

The Child Protection Center was one of the five buildings honored in the Community Impact category. CPC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention, identification, and treatment of child abuse and violence and selected Generator Studio for the relocation of its headquarters. Privacy, safety and exceptional acoustics were paramount given the nature of CPC’s services – forensic interviews by CPC staff are used as evidence in court. Generator designed separate spaces for staff offices and client services, giving therapists a variety of areas to work, gather or find respite; and offering kids an environment that uplifts and fosters courage for telling their stories. 

CPKC Stadium, the first purpose-built venue for a women’s professional sports team, was one of two projects that earned Judges Special Recognition. The 11,500-seat stadium will celebrate its grand opening on March 16th with the Current’s home opener against the Portland Thorns. The stadium’s design includes fan-first experiences throughout, including all seating options being no more than 100ft. from the pitch, concessions on all four sides of the venue featuring local restaurants, and high-tech sensors to streamline security screenings for attendee entryways.

The Kansas City Business Journal Capstone Awards annually recognizes the top real estate and development projects in the metro area. All award winners will be recognized at the 19th annual Capstone Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, May 1st.
