King Street Center Unveils New Building

by TruexCullins, May 15, 2013

Our neighbor King Street Center is growing and expanding their space. TruexCullins Architecture is proud to be a part of the effort. The King Street Center has been an essential hub in our neighborhood for more than 20 years, serving the young and their families with the process of learning and growing. Twenty years ago Roland Batten Architect helped create the original King Street Center and now Rolf Kielman (a former partner of Roland’s), a principal at TruexcCullins, is continuing that work with the re-design of the new and expanded Center.

King Street Center - New LobbyThe new King Street Center will be a 4.5 million dollar project and will significantly expand the space needs of the center. A new entry, a new two and half story west wing and a renovated gymnasium are features of the project. A roof top playground will address the small amount of play space that exists now on the King Street Center site. The building will address environmental needs and be a model for energy efficiency exemplified by the use of day lighting and high quality mechanical and lighting systems.
