Project: Chevy Chase Community Center
Client: DC Department of General Services
The project is the renovation and expansion of the existing Chevy Chase Community Center that is a key component of the urban fabric to the DC area. The existing center is a 3-story, 32,000 sf facility situated along Connecticut Avenue. The proposed design addresses some of the key challenges which include giving the community center a corner street presence, simplifying the circulation, addressing the accessibility challenges, and creating both an indoor and outdoor environment that is inviting and flexible. Resolving these challenges in a sustainable and artful way, allows the facility to promote DPR’s mission to promote wellness, conserve the environment and provide universal access.
