Welcome Center of the Outer Banks
Location: Manteo, NC
The Welcome Center functions as the primary information center for visitors to the Outer Banks. The facility houses an interactive information center, bathroom facilities, meeting rooms, and reading areas. Traditional materials such as cedar lap siding; vertical board and batten, and cedar roof shingles were used. Additionally, traditional forms such as steep pitched, multiple gable roof forms, bracketed porches, dormers and a belvedere were abstracted to evoke the spirit of the Outer Banks.
