Client City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation
This 3,300 square foot neighborhood center was designed to be a central gathering space for this community-driven southeast Raleigh park. The program includes a large community meeting room and computer classrooms. The building was oriented to take advantage of daylighting opportunities year-round, and natural shade from existing deciduous trees during the summer months.
The owner had a particular interest in implementing universal accessibility and green building technologies. Five potential schemes were evaluated by our team, the City, and the neighborhood to reach a consensus on building placement and conformance with the intent of the park’s original master plan.
Each project listed above exemplifies one or more of the learning, wellness, and recreational qualities that are the focus of our designed spaces.
