The Neighborhood House | Renovation

Archetype: ReUse

The Neighborhood House was constructed as a child care center in 1927 and has always served the community as a child care, day care, or school. The Bridge Project, an after school tutoring and mentoring program operated by the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work, became the new tenant in 2014. To accommodate the Bridge Project’s needs, Pahl Architecture worked with the City and County of Denver to provide full space planning, programming, and construction documents for the renovation of the building and the build-out of the tenant’s programs. The building’s exterior façade was renovated and painted, old windows and doors were replaced, and  exterior site work and landscaping were replaced. The interior of the building was brought up to current life safety codes and first-floor accessibility was added along with new restrooms, fire alarms, new HVAC systems, all new electrical work, wireless internet, as well as new finishes.
