Meeting Street Center for Excellence

providence, rhode island

status : complete

While designing at SA Architects I was given the opportunity to conceptualize, design and develop the Meeting Street Center, a 76,000-square-foot building situated on a nine-acre campus specializing in special-needs educational, therapeutic and diagnostic services to over 3,000 children and their families each year.

The main design objectives for the campus include: creating a dialog between an unfolding urban landscape and the natural environment, developing public spaces that engage students through overlapping meeting spaces, indoor gardens and galleries, outward gestures into the landscape to engage its surroundings, an expansion and contraction of spaces in order to create private/intimate corridors that morph into public/social spaces for gatherings, and fragmented/linear circulation that combines notions of “hallway” (mechanical) and “pathway” (organic).
