Project Spotlight

Discovery Place Kids
Rockingham, North Carolina

This project consists of the complete renovation of an existing furniture store in historic downtown Rockingham, North Carolina to accommodate a new Discovery Place Kids museum. The existing building dates back to 1950, and is load bearing brick construction with barrel vault steel trusses spanning 64 feet. The design intent was to maintain the look and feel of this well known building so it would continue to respond to its surroundings. The exterior elevations were given a fresh look by adding an energy efficient new storefront, an entrance canopy and applied graphics. Interior work includes complete demolition of existing finishes, new interior partitions and finishes, new mechanical, plumbing, electrical and Life Safety System, along with new exhibit lighting. A large monumental stair was cut into the existing floor for pedestrian circulation and the covered trusses were exposed to create an open environment. The program of interior spaces consists of an admissions area, classrooms, a shop, offices, new toilets and other support spaces. The design was coordinated closely to support the needs of exhibit designers.
