The King Street Center serves more than 500 children and families with pre-school and after-school programs, tutoring, mentoring, technology education, athletics and the arts. TruexCullins was proud to work with the King Street Center to complete this major renovation and expansion project, increasing the center’s size from 12,500 to 23,000 square feet.
The building is located in a developed urban block consisting of variously scaled residential structures. The renovated façade eases the center’s increased program into a delicate street setting. The building exterior expresses a contemporary architectural language while echoing the long history of this lakeside neighborhood. Major program elements include two floors of classroom space, a renovated gymnasium, a more pedestrian-friendly entrance, and a rooftop playground.
