Responsible for all phases of design. Developed master plan for the adaptive reuse of 250 year old Single Sisters House to a state of the art classrooms, exhibit spaces and offices while keeping the historic integrity. The vacant building with an intact built record of its evolving occupancy offered opportunity to probe locations of former doors, stairs and windows. Throughout the building, “windows to the past” display in-situ fragments of those earlier features. Received Carraway Award of Merit from Preservation North Carolina, and Carolinas AGC Pinnacle Award for Best Building Project in 2007.
