Liquor Corral, Buckeye, Arizona


The Liquor Corral, a business in Historic Downtown Buckeye, is revitalizing the façade to bring new life to a building which contains a thriving business, yet a tired exterior appearance.

The original building is your typical standard metal structure you may see on surrounding properties throughout Buckeye.  Years ago, a covered wood porch entryway was built on the front north facade to embellish the standard building.

The new improvements include a new entry doorway and windows without the present security bars to open the building and make it more welcoming/inviting.  Sliding barn doors with a cut metal pattern were added for security.  It allows it to be very transparent during the day with added security at night when closed.

New exterior raw steel material was added to the north building facade along Monroe Avenue with a design elegance reflecting the motive of western wear.  The pattern of cowboy boot design was used as the inspiration for the fenestration.  Custom steel panels were designed and cut using a sophisticated computer aided machine.

The panels have a natural rust patina finish.  This finish is seen throughout the desert southwest in many forms.  Architecturally, it brings a warmth and a level of sophistication to the building.

Project to be completed in summer of 2016.
