Sophie B. Wright School wins AIA Gulf States Merit Award

Waggonner & Ball's additions and renovations to the Sophie B. Wright School were recognized at the AIA National Convention in Las Vegas with a Gulf States Merit Award. From the jury:

"A renovation and adaptive reuse that respects the excellent bones of the existing building, revealing its best attributes, and expanding it in a way that is both dignified and contemporary. Interventions in the original building take advantage of historic features, and are beautifully resolved with sensitivity to existing conditions. A gentle approach that removed intrusive interventions that had occurred over time, yielding a bright and open environment that celebrates both historic fabric and contemporary needs."
