Design of a retail space for a growing gift and home shop located in a historic building in our neighborhood, downtown. Grid lines created the framework on the floor, carry through on the ceiling with a grid to house the track lighting system and continue up the walls . These gridlines create a backdrop to showcase the merchandise the store will carry.
The Ridge Center is a new 10,000 sf single-story amenities building located within Ocean Ridge Plantation, an existing retirement community. This building holds meeting spaces, a large event space, offices, and a congregating library area. Throughout the site is adequate parking, pickleball courts with separate parking, and a new 4,000 sf outdoor pool with a 6,000 sf pool deck. Also included in this project was the renovation of the community’s existing 7,500 sf clubhouse to become a primarily gym-use facility.

This project was with the City of Raleigh, Parks and Recreation, and the Raleigh Fire Department. It consisted of a clean office plan addition for the fire chief and his peers, with sound-isolating glass partitions. This simple office layout within a building that has been renovated multiple times, creating a unique challenge of coordinating with new and existing egress and building systems.
Renovation of an existing 6,080 sf church building with historic significance dating back to the early 1900s with additions added in the 1950s. The new congregation required a reconfiguration of the sanctuary and classrooms to make the space functional for their Sunday worship services and child care as well as weekly office use. In addition, care was given to improving accessibility, functionality and the overall aesthetics of the space.
A 3,200 sf renovation/office fit-up of an existing building owned by the Cary Oil Company. Scope is restricted to the 2nd floor, with minor work on the 3rd floor. Work includes new layout configurations with offices, conference rooms, open break rooms, various open/flex spaces, new restroom layouts, new plumbing and lighting fixtures, HVAC upgrades, furniture upgrades, and new finishes on both floors. Scope also includes the replacement of the entire 2nd-floor exterior storefront window system with new, slightly taller storefront windows, as well as the replacement of the exterior EIFS wall system with a new metal wall panel system.
The new clubhouse stands at an existing apartment complex where the previous clubhouse had burned down. The previous building footprint was the starting point for the new construction. Our scope of work included architectural services for the new building from schematic design through construction closeout and Interior Design with furniture selection.
The facility is unique and extraordinary – a long, narrow space flanked by large windows facing east and south. A continuous curved wall connects the entry, lobby, and treatment areas, from front to back. Sustainable, natural materials and innovative lighting keep the air clear and respond to the daylighting. Art and woodwork are key features of the overall design.
