The firm worked closely with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and several neighborhood and parents groups to design this new clubhouse in Hartford’s Asylum Hill neighborhood. The 30,000 square foot facility includes a 6,000 square foot gymnasium, fitness room, “black box” theater, a computer technology center, homework room, arts classroom, meeting rooms, snack bar, and social spaces for teens as well as for younger members. The second floor of the building also house the main offices of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Hartford.
The “L-shaped” wings of the building enclose the gymnasium, and there is a glass-walled corridor and “viewing stair” that act as additional bleacher seating space.
