Project Type: Adaptive Reuse and New Construction
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Area: 26,000 sq. ft.
Occupancy Year: 2002

The Christopher Columbus Charter School began with adaptive reuse of several existing row houses. In the design process, the team from Lighthouse Architecture discovered the need to build a new steel structure for the educational facility.

The Philadelphia architecture firm employed colored concrete block masonry as a cost-efficient way to reflect the vernacular of the South Philadelphia neighborhood. Lighthouse provided complete architectural, interior design and building systems engineering services for the project.
