Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts
Located in the small town of Franklin, in the foothills of Western North Carolina, is one of the most challenging and enjoyable projects that we have had the pleasure to serve. A personal dream of the Owner, and a great enhancement to the Community, this multi-use performance Theater has fixed seating for 1,500 people within its main floor, balcony, and box areas. The combination of wood, stone, brick, and large expanses of glass create an amazing aesthetic for the facility; and the layout of the seating area allows for incredible acoustical properties, all within a very intimate arrangement.

First United Methodist Church of Murfreesboro
Beginning as a Masterplanning effort, circumstances led this long-standing congregation towards a relocation endeavor from their downtown location to a new 20-acre site on the fast-growing east side of Murfreesboro. This new facility serves a congregation of over 1,300 persons, inclusive of a licensed Daycare for 90 children. Its contemporary gothic styling is reflective of the old, but brings the church into today’s aesthetic and performance. It is a very unique environment, that is truly a space to experience.

Cascade Hills Baptist Church
Planning & Design of the initial facility development was an incredible challenge and opportunity for us to serve one of the fastest growing churches in the country. A small group of believers sought to make a major impact with a move to a new facility on the North Columbus Bypass in Columbus, Georgia. Initially served by a full-ministry facility for over 1,250 persons in a single service, the campus has evolved through several phases of expansions now representing one of the premier campuses in the Southeast with over 7,000 in attendance.

Lake Junaluska Welcome Center & Shackford Hall
The “Lake” has been a long-standing service relationship for us, and most recently we were able to develop a new “welcome” for this Christian Center, as its check-in and registration facility. A true reflection of the region’s architectural style, it’s large central volume is flanked by wings to house offices and large assembly/meeting rooms that go beyond the aesthetic to meet the core programming needs.

Foxhollow Goodson Corporate Office
When we set out on this journey it was our goal to create a very dynamic space that would encourage and enhance teamwork within our firm, while at the same promoting “self-image’ for each of our specialized service divisions. Beyond that we wanted to make a statement as a “design firm”, acknowledging an appreciation for long-standing “arts & crafts” architectural style, while taking the opportunity to highlight a wide variety of materials and creative applications on both the exterior and interior.
