The location of this project is in the center of low-income housing projects. Before this existed, it was a dark uninviting place which unfortunately lots of crimes took place. The developer took on the responsibility to establish a safe place for its residents and children to use. Steve of d/b/A Design Build was hired to design a place for such intent. The result is a warm and welcoming community center for everyone to come together to play, do homework and even yoga. One thing we particular like about this project is the continuation of the ceiling material from inside to outside. It is especially apparent during the evening, which is one of our favorite shot!
