Disney Springs Building B06
This building is the largest brick building in all of Disney World’s properties. The theme behind this building is to resemble a 19th Century industrial building which has been outfitted with retail tenants. The building is made of CMU and approximately 150,000 bricks on the exterior and interior. The mortar joints were themed in such a way that it gives the impression the building has been in existence for over 100 years. The exterior walls are double width brick walls which consist a many different architectural details. There are dark brick header bands with sections of the walls being proud and recessed which make the exterior façade aesthetically appealing. Finishing off the top of the exterior walls are 6 courses of corbeled bricks that slope with the wall and terminate to a peak. Another architectural characteristic are the dozens of arched window and door openings which consist of rowlock and soldier courses. These are true natural arches which are self-supported and do not use steel angles. On the interior of the building there are brick columns which corbel out and give the appearance that they support the structural steel beams of the roof.
