STEPHENS-LEE REC CENTER - Asheville, NC
Currently a City of Asheville community center, the old Stephens-Lee High School played an important role in the African-American community. Our additions and renovations included code compliance improvements: providing access to the handicapped, appropriate fire protection, adequate plumbing fixture counts and upgrading of building systems and finishes. Reworked spaces meet new recreational needs and include meeting rooms, a catering kitchen, offices, gymnasium, locker areas, fitness center and an archives room. The project received a Griffin Award for Excellence in Preservation.
