HH Architecture designed the Governor James G. Martin Building, a 9,500 square foot meeting facility at the NC State Fairgrounds. The building was designed to serve a multitude of purposes, with a large daylit porch adjacent to an indoor meeting space that increases the rentable area. The Martin building is a “gateway” to the main fairgrounds campus, recognizable as a landmark for those entering the Fairgrounds and for lost families during the Fair itself.
The design process included analysis of pedestrian traffic at both fair and non-fair times. The porch becomes a central nexus – both a gathering place and a respite from the crowds.
Each project listed above exemplifies one or more of the learning, wellness, and recreational qualities that are the focus of our designed spaces.
