New East

Location
North East, Maryland
Year Completed
2014
Scale
Community Building + Boys & Girls Club

The community center at New East Crossing serves the adjacent residential apartment community. The design links two distinct yet complimentary buildings. The larger of the buildings is the Community Center, defined and grounded on the sloped site by its distinctive stacked stone corner. The second building sits atop the hill, and is home to a branch of the Boys & Girls Club of Cecil County. A literal bridge, part of an open-air breezeway, crosses a storm water retention runoff path and joins the two buildings. Simple materials and pitched single-plane roofs create a contemporary counter-point to the transitional-traditional architectural style of the residential buildings.
