Innovation Center

Located in the heart of downtown Harrisonburg Virginia, the existing rundown structure was originally built as a department store. The windowless building occupied the premier corner of downtown Harrisonburg with the signature address One Court Square.

Working with the town of Harrisonburg the project goal was to create a speculative innovation center with shared common facilities. The design and careful programming of the project were both aimed at promoting collaboration among multiple occupants. A dramatic atrium that becomes an extension of the streetscape and the town square, creates an interior public plaza reinforced by lifting the building off the ground plane and opening up the structure to the public realm.
