Groundbreaking Ceremony for Los Angeles Nonprofit’s New Teen Center
As part of the HOK 24 / SIXTY firm-wide community service initiative, HOK’s Los Angeles office has donated pro bono services to design a new Annex and Teen Center for local nonprofit A Place Called Home (APCH).
HOK team members celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of APCH’s new Annex and Teen Center with staff, supporters, community leaders and general contractor Gillette Properties. The project is converting an existing warehouse into an annex and teen center for APCH’s educational and training programs.
HOK’s Los Angeles office has donated architecture services to design the new space. The APCH Annex will add 7,500 square feet of program space to the existing facility.
The space will enable APCH to serve more children and teens with educational and enrichment opportunities. At the new Teen Center, APCH will host “Bridge to the Future” programs and use the performance space for other activities including the dance, band, fine arts, digital media education, theater and spoken word programs. They will be able to host more community events and performances for the entire neighborhood to enjoy.
Team members from HOK’s Los Angeles office also participated in a recent neighborhood clean-up event with ACPH families.
