Watkins Design Works has completed multiple projects for West Virginia State Parks. These projects range in size from a full lodge renovation to simple drapery selections for rustic log cabins. All feature locally-made furniture, notably WV manufacturer Gat Creek, who was also a client and provided custom pieces for most of the projects.
Photos below show some of the furniture and renovations to the lodge at Hawks Nest State Park, which was originally designed by The Architects Collaborative. Contact AIA West Virginia to schedule a viewing of a short film commissioned in 2019 as part of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus which features this and other buildings in West Virginia designed by Walter Gropius.
