Mission Road Developmental Center offers rehabilitation programs for developmentally challenged children and adults. The new Oppenheimer Center includes classrooms along with a multipurpose room for campus wide activities. Because a large number of activities are outdoors, the courtyard within the “U” shaped building is designed to foster a secure environment for recreational activities. Natural lighting is a key component of the design. All classrooms face the courtyard and full height glazing within each classroom helps the users connect the indoors with the outdoors. Our design included adaptive reuse of a World War II chapel which was used as a gym. The design team saved the wonderful wood truss framework of the building; removed the exterior walls and created a multi-purpose pavilion. The pavilion is used for a variety of campus-wide activities and gatherings.
