The new Girls Inc. Simpson Center for Girls is an adaptive re-use and rehabilitation of an existing 5-story, 34,000 square foot historic office building in Oakland, originally constructed in 1919. Anne Phillips Architecture (APA) worked closely with the owner to create vibrant and functional environments for its central administrative offices, program space and first of its kind resource center serving girls at risk.
The project includes a complete interior renovation, voluntary seismic retrofit, preservation of the historic terra cotta façade, new signage and a new entry to improve street presence. The project anticipates LEED certification early next year.
Join us for a tour led by Anne Phillips, AIA and Winston Win, AIA. All are welcome!
