St. Paul's Center for Hope and Healing

Project: St. Paul's Center for Hope and Healing (Entry Pavilion)
Client: St. Paul's Center for Hope and Healing
Location: Cary, NC
Type: Office + Workplace
Size: 2,800sf
Status: Concept Design Phase Completed 2003

The project consisted of a new 600sf entry pavilion, site work and renovation of an existing 2,200sf residence for the new Center for Hope and Healing. New program space for the renovated facility includes meeting spaces, offices, conference rooms and therapy rooms.

A key design challenge for the project was to connect pedestrian circulation from the existing parking lot and church entry to the Center main entry courtyard. The existing house is set back into a heavily wooded lot not easily seen from the parking lot. The pavilion acts as an enty gate and threshold for arriving guests to proceed down a wooded path to the Center. The house renovation consists of re-programming interior spaces and addressing accessibility issues.
