Asheville Art Museum:

This 68,000-plus square foot facility, the most state-of-the-art building in North Carolina. It’s actually three buildings that have been put together to create one coherent whole.


With the historic preservation of the Museum’s current North Wing (the 1926 Pack Library building) and the renovation of existing Museum spaces and new construction, we have transformed prior disparate spaces into a new cohesive, coherent, and inviting Museum. The new Museum elegantly combines historic and contemporary elements. It honors the past with the restoration of the Pack Library building, an Asheville landmark built in 1926, and it steps into the future as a 21st-century architectural landmark in downtown Asheville with a visually stunning new front façade, entrance, and plaza.
