    Project Type: Commercial Space Upfit

    Project Year: 2016

    Location: Durham, NC


    Center Studio Architecture was proud to work with Empower Dance Studio and the Empress Development team to fill the vacant storefront space at 109 W. Parrish Street in October of 2016. ┬áThe previously unoccupied space was converted into a dance studio that focuses on empowering youth through dance and faith. ┬áThe space is largely made up of a spacious dance floor with a restroom, small waiting area, homework nook, and director’s office located around the periphery. This tenant upfit marked the final phase of the improvements to the Parrish Street side of the Empress Building, which has been under development since 2013.
