Preservation N.C. Features Meredith I.D. Project

Preservation North Carolina has featured a Meredith College interior design project on its website.

Students in faculty member Lina Sibert’s Interior Design II (ID 244) class were invited by Elizabeth Sappenfield, Preservation North Carolina’s director of urban issues, to help with an ongoing renovation project in Goldsboro, N.C.

The Meredith students were asked to re-imagine how some of Goldsboro’s Victorian homes could be renovated as single-family homes while maintaining historic character.

“The project was a perfect fit for the class, which focuses on residential interiors,” Sibert said.

Eighteen students in the class were divided into groups of three. The class developed design ideas for six historic homes in Goldsboro. They presented their work at Goldsboro’s city hall, to an audience including local officials, Preservation North Carolina members, and local homeowners.
