Harrisonburg, Virginia

After the City Public Schools declared this property as surplus, we were tasked with designing a home for the Boys and Girls Club and The Op Shop, along with new facilities for Parks and Recreation and local groups who needed meeting space. The design process included town-hall style meetings and the goal of both preserving and expanding the facility. To access historic preservation tax credits, the team paid careful attention to the design and detailing, giving a future to the building.
