Providence, Rhode Island
Project: New urban campus facility
Size: 3,900 square feet
This new facility designed by Saccoccio & Associates is a “business incubator” center for budding entrepreneurs of The Met School in Providence. The building plan includes multiple work rooms to serve student groups as they conceptualize and model their own small businesses. The “post & beam” design conforms to NE CHPS (New England Collaborative for High Performance Schools) standards now in use by the RI Department of Education.
The building exterior links contextually to other Met campus structures and offers a pleasing contrast to nearby urban environment. The small scale of the Entrepreneurial Center is welcoming and embodies its function as a place where ideas are nurtured.
