Built in 1929, the Omohundro Water Treatment Plant for Metro Water Services is unexpected and magnificent. It features a basilica–inspired floor plan with brick arches, steel industrial windows, a high clerestory hallway, stained wood plank ceilings, and green and white checkerboard terrazzo flooring. Restoring the aging exterior and interior required difficult design decisions to preserve its depression era industrial aesthetic. Because of this restoration and the facility’s location, it was the only water treatment plant to survive the 2010 floods in Nashville.
