LEVER has been selected as part of the newest cohort of the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program. Established by the Walton Family Foundation, the program promotes the highest level of design in the development of public buildings and spaces in Arkansas’ Benton and Washington counties.

“The Design Excellence Program is unique not only in its focus on America’s Heartland but in its ability to shape and strengthen communities through public spaces,” said Jeremy Pate, senior program officer with the Walton Family Foundation’s Home Region Program. “The program’s continued success speaks to the diversity of its talent and its commitment to engaging with those served by its projects.”
