Brackett Park Community Center – Minneapolis, MN
This project is the result of a feasibility study commissioned earlier to the firm which studied options for remodeling or replacing an existing community center. A final scheme was selected by the design team based on its ability to best meet the needs of the neighborhood. The team was comprised of a committee of community representatives, two commissioners from the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, and the design professionals. The existing facility is being replaced with a new building which includes a gathering space and warming room with fireplace, two multipurpose rooms, an arts and crafts space, a kitchen, an office with reception area, and restrooms.
