5. Who designed the building?

Building Expansion Logo


The Center hired architect Ellen Cassilly, who designed a splendid shrine room, full of light and air, with windows overlooking the backyard, and a gorgeous space that will

inspire anyone who walks in the door. Ellen’s experience navigating the Durham City building requirements have been a tremendous asset to the process. The initial plans by

Ellen were revised by Contractor Tom Johnson to reduce building costs by constructing a separate structure rather than an addition to the current building.
