This existing 1930’s rustic-style building is currently being redeveloped to become multi-family housing.  Originally constructed for use as a public school, the existing building is now listed on the National Register.of Historic Places.  The building consists of solid stone exterior walls and foundation, with wood framing on the interior. In addition to providing the schematic layout and detailed design for the new spaces, EA Studio has also assisted the developer with various challenges to the building’s redevelopment, including site, zoning, and building code issues.

The new multi-family building will consist of 16 apartments, as well as office spaces. The units that are to be constructed in former gym and stage areas will have mezzanine levels. The new interiors are to maintain an early 20th century aesthetic reminiscent of the building’s early history.
