Balancing accessibility and historic
preservation is a challenging task. In 2009, KEA completed an
accessibility project at the east entrance of the Capitol. Subtle
sloping ramps, careful material selection, and sensitive design
allowed the entrance to be universally accessible while blending
seamlessly with the historic building. The project won a Sir Walter
Raleigh Design Award from the City of Raleigh in 2010, and received a
letter of commendation from the State Capitol Foundation.
ramp was part of a larger project by Little & Little Landscape
Architects to renovate the walks around the Capitol Building.
