The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club had grown from an original membership in 1945 of 230 to more than 700, and its facility needed a significant renovation and expansion.
The design keeps within the strict Historic District regulations on the island. During design, a seamless reconfiguration was achieved thanks to the ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONASSOCIATED FIRMRGO ArchitectsCOST PER SQ FT$247.00FEATURED IN2016 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYSports Stadiums/Athletic Facilities decision to demolish, rather than renovate, the existing single-court gymnasium. This allowed for a logical progression of program through the building and a new, two-court gymnasium. The expansion also included a much larger game space, a teen room, a commercial grade kitchen, bathrooms, and new office space.
Major renovation to the remainder of the facility resulted in a new computer center, a learning center, offices, a new snack space and distribution system, bathrooms, and an improved locker room core. In addition, the entire facility was connected to a state-of-the-art geothermal mechanical system.
The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club no longer needs to worry about turning away a child in need. It can now offer a wide range of enriching activities to anyone within the community who needs it.
