Pettigrew State Park Wins AIA Triangle Design Award!

The EVOKE team

The EVOKE team

At the 2019 AIA Triangle Design Awards, EVOKE was thrilled to be recognized with a Merit Award for the Pettigrew State Park Visitor Center project! This unbuilt project—a modern presentation of the traditional Southern porch—has been in the works since mid-2018 and once complete will provide a new visitor center for Lake Phelps and Somerset Place in Creswell, NC. We look forward to continuing to work with the NC Division of Parks and Recreation to complete this project successfully.

This year’s awards were presented at Union Station in Raleigh by jury chair Steve Dumez, FAIA, Director of Design at Eskew+Dumez+Ripple in New Orleans, LA. During the award presentations, Steve spoke about the overall high quality of architectural work in the Triangle area and how impressed he was with the 2019 award submissions.

Jessica Weiner was also honored at the award ceremony as a recipient of an AIAT 2019 Scholarship Honor Award, presented by Ellen Weinstein, AIA. Congratulations on this recognition of your wonderful work, Jessica!
