Work is finishing up on the new Alpharetta Arts Center, and the facility should be open to the public within the next few weeks. The $3.35 million project converted an old Fulton County Library into a municipal arts center that will serve as the hub of Alpharetta’s garden and arts district. The 8,500 SF facility has studios for painting and crafts, a blackbox theater, a media studio, and gallery space. The single-story building is dominated by a large “flex space” that can be used as an auditorium, gallery or banquet hall.
Breedlove Land Planning provided site design services for the project which included outdoor classroom seat walls, a new loading dock/service area, monumental entrance walls and pedestrian connectivity to the broader city network. Most notable are the sculpture gardens which included extensive landscaping and pathways. The project also included upgrades to the existing stormwater management facility and parking areas.
