An Unlikely Story
Beals+Thomas assisted Jeff Kinney, the prominent children’s book author and resident of Plainville, and his architect, Bergmeyer Associates, Inc., on the redevelopment of 111 South Street in Plainville, MA and the opening of the new bookstore, An Unlikely Story.
The project, located on a prominent corner in the center of town, has replaced the beloved former general store, Falk’s Market, which sat vacant for 20 years. The new building has enlivened downtown Plainville with a bookstore, café, meeting space and conference rooms that utilized by various local organizations. The building also includes a writing studio for Mr. Kinney, where he intends to produce additional stories in the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.
Beals+Thomas prepared the landscape design as well as calculations and documentation to assist in achieving LEED® Gold certification.
