At the location of the old Chaffins School, this new facility for the local utility company consists of 10,000 SF of office space and 6,000 SF of vehicular storage space. The design challenge was to provide a functional facility for vehicles and staff that was sensitive to its residential context. Siting, vehicular access, exterior materials, scale, and massing were carefully considered to meet the Light Department's needs and to be sympathetic to the neighborhood.
