Art Building Wins Prestigious Architecture Award from AIA
Meet the Architect
We are so happy for our peer and long-time friend, architect John Yurko whose design for a new Art Center at a Hendersonville summer camp was recently cited for an Interior Architecture Award from the Asheville Section of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are proud to have been part of the team to design and build this remarkable structure.
“The AIA Design Award Program represents the defining principles of good design in the 21st century, and celebrates thoughtfully designed spaces,” said John Yurko AIA, partner at Yurko Walter Architecture x Interiors. “We’re honored for this recognition, and the campers are inspired by the artful building and its interiors. Our entire project team, including the visionary Camp leadership and the excellent staff at Sineath Construction are pleased to be acknowledged for the mark the building makes on our community.”
About the Art Center
You might recognize the building from social media or the project portfolio. The two-story art building is clad with metal siding and wood features. The metal roof includes fiberglass skylights that allow diffused light into the wood-clad art room below. A woodshop, a pottery room, bathrooms and storage rooms complete the first floor. A digital arts studio and meeting spaces occupy the second floor.
“The art building was a unique and challenging project for us,” said Brian Sineath. “The open, interior structure allows for the soaring space about the art tables while supporting the building in a way where function reflects art. It pushed our team to delivering this incredible vision, and we’re thrilled to have been a part of this award-winning project.”
What is cool is that all section award winners will move onto state AIA awards and may be considered for a national award from AIA. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
