Morristown & Morris Township Teen Center

The design of a 35,000 sf, multi-story teen center in conjunction with executive offices for the Morris School District on a surplus school site in Morristown, NJ.

A special use counseling center is incorporated into the plan along with administrative offices. The executive offices of the Morris School District are also incorporated and include 10,000 sf of office and administrative space.

A brick and glass facade features curved metal and membrane flat roof surfaces, with attention to drop off, parking and service areas.

Project Area: 35,000 sf
Project Budget: $8.75 mil.
Project Schedule: 6 months of design process including community meetings and town review. Construction pending
