PROJECT SCOPE: 9,000 S.F. Design New

Mixed-Use Family Center

Rhodius Park Family Center included the development of a 9,000 sf addition to William Penn Elementary School, programmed to house community activities and programs provided by the Indianapolis Department of Parks and Recreation.


The overall design of the family center utilizes the use of

geometric forms and primary colors a living scale educational tool.

The spaces are designed to be flexible and technologically

integrated to allow both the school and community to utilize the

facility for events that may range from “movie night” to formal

business presentations. The main benefit in this endeavor is

breathing fresh breath of life back into a community that felt

abandoned and neglected for years.
