KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Studio Four Design, a top architecture and design firm based in Knoxville, Tennessee that specializes in retail design, has won a 2016 Knox Heritage "Fantastic Fifteen" Award for their collaborative design efforts with Jeffrey and Patricia Nash for the preservation rehabilitation of the Patricia Nash Designs corporate headquarters and flagship showroom at 1132 North 6 th Avenue in downtown Knoxville.
The award, which is given annually to 15 construction, design and rehabilitation projects within Knox County that have contributed significantly toward a preservation effort, was presented at the Knox Heritage Annual Meeting and Preservation Awards in early November. "This award was a great honor for us," said Greg Terry, principal and design director at Studio Four Design. "We originally nominated Jeffrey and Patricia for the award, and didn't imagine we were going to be included. Jeffrey has done so much for this community over the years restoring unique, historic structures all over Knoxville. This building is no different, and we are honored that we were able to collaborate with them on the interior design of the building." Originally built in 1928, the building was used as a manufacturing facility and warehouse for various woodworking companies and sat empty for about 12 years before it was purchased by Nash in 2015.
