City of North Plains Jessie Mays Community Hall and Park

The Jessie Mays Community Hall is the City of North Plains’ primary community center and located within the City’s largest park. Formerly a gymnasium for an elementary school, the facility hosts a variety of events that vary in scale, type, and duration, the largest being the annual Garlic Festival.

We collaborated with the City to develop a feasibility study and subsequent conceptual design for an expansion of the building. The concept was developed as a comprehensive vision to best accommodate both current uses and projected future need and to maximize opportunities for connections between site and building.
