Warren Wilson College

New Academic Building

Asheville, NC

Warren Wilson College, a private liberal arts campus that emphasizes a unique blend of learn, work, and play, commissioned Lord Aeck Sargent to design a new state-of-the-art academic classroom building at a significant location on campus.

While psychology and religious studies are among the departments housed in the building, the project was designed to retain a high degree of flexibility to accommodate changing programs over time. The building includes classrooms, faculty offices and student collaboration spaces. 

With spectacular views over the adjacent valley, the building’s design offers an open configuration that can accommodate presentations, events and/or receptions. The building is LEED Gold certified.
