Asheville Foundry Inn
The Asheville Foundry Inn comprises a one-acre site in Asheville’s historic downtown area known as “The Block”. Once the city’s original foundry buildings, notably having forged steel for sites like the Biltmore Estate, the redevelopment includes two new buildings and three structures transformed into a 92 key boutique hotel. To realize these objectives, Sitework Studios collaborated with design partners Studio Z Architecture and Civil Design Concepts, planned a vibrant outdoor courtyard, guest entrance and arrival, and versatile event space to collectively unify the site. We also acted as liaison between the client, Encore Development, and the City of Asheville for site permitting, zoning, and entitlement, ultimately providing construction documentation and administration.
