The challenge was to take the unused, yet historically significant McCleary School building and readapt its use to meet the community’s changing needs. The design worked to maintain the building’s integrity and highlight the historic design, while introducing modern elements. The most significant design challenge was to introduce a new top level to the building, which had undergone significant changes throughout its history. Careful consideration was also taken to preserve the integrity of many historic interior elements.
