George Milton Small’s Office seen from Brooks Avenue

This building has been home to a few different businesses over the years, but was originally the architectural office of George Milton Small, who designed it and worked in it for many years. Located on Brooks Avenue on a small lot near the NCSU campus, the building is raised on columns creating a parking area below. The hardwood ceiling over the parking and open gravel lot beneath makes it a much nicer parking experience than most utilitarian lots beneath buildings.

The other feature that makes for a nice experience is the pedestrian link directly off the sidewalk, across the water fountain, and up the stairs into the entrance.

Pedestrians enter from the street, over the water feature, then up the stairs.

George Milton Small was born in 1916 in Oklahoma,  studied architecture in Chicago under Mies Van der Rohe, moved to Raleigh 1948 and over the next decades contributed many modern buildings to the Raleigh landscape.  He died in 1992.
