Academic Facility Renovation Space And Design Planning

In 2011 B&D was selected by Young Harris College to provide preliminary space planning services for the renovation of an historic 1920s home named the Bonner House into a new Center for Appalachian Studies. The center’s mission is “to educate, inspire, and empower students through study and experience of the rich character and culture of the Appalachian Region.” The renovation included a gallery space, faculty offices, bathrooms, a kitchen, and a garden to showcase Appalachian artists’ work. The new Center for Appalachian Studies space was completed in the summer of 2011
