Design Considerations

  • Effective use of dedicated and flexible-use space to accommodate diverse programmatic needs
  • Provide welcoming lounges to promote drop-in use and social connection
  • Seamless universal design

Lifespan Design Studio (LDS) worked closely with the client team and edm to assign and arrange space effectively in this new 10,350 square foot center. Aesthetic cues from the area’s agricultural roots were applied to meet the requirements of the Town’s historic district and complement the new library with which the Center shares a site. The state-of-the art facility incorporates two welcoming lounges, a large dining/assembly room with commercial kitchen, exercise/dance studio, art room, flexible-use classroom, and health suite.
