Multiple and significant projects for one of the Southeast’s most respected Boarding Schools
Located on a stunning, pastoral 300 acre campus in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this outstanding private, co-ed school and its student body represent roughly 25 different states and 13 foreign countries. Nurtured by a dedicated faculty who strive to educate the mind, body and spirit of each student, the school requires well-designed spaces that support the mission and goals of this premier learning institution.
Due to the school’s continued and growing success over the years, John and his design team have worked with the staff since 1989 to design the interiors for many significant projects including the new 18,000 square foot, Kehaya House girls dormitory; the 24,000 square foot John Lloyd Tyrer Student Center addition to the Walker Fine Arts Complex; the 66,000 square foot addition to the existing, Rodgers Memorial Gymnasium...
The transformative renovation of the existing 15,230 square foot Memorial Dining Hall to the Skinner Library and Childs Conference Center and the renovation of the ground floor of Mitchell Hall Science Facilities for new classrooms, laboratory’s and faculty offices.
The interior design within each of these new facilities reflects the core values of the Asheville School and the historical context, materials and details dating back to 1901, while supporting and accommodating 21st century technology and future flexibility.
