YWCA of Southeastern Massachusetts | Under One Roof
Davis Square Architects was asked to team up with the YWCA of Southeastern Massachusetts on Under One Roof, the renovation and addition to their facilities in downtown New Bedford.
The project includes renovations to their existing historic three-story building, plus a 6,500 sf two-story addition. The existing building houses the administrative offices on the first and second floors. At the basement/ground floor, a gut renovation created finished spaces for the YWkids after-school program, with the remaining floors undergoing accessibility and life safety upgrades. In the new building, the ground floor houses the YWkids after-school program, and the upper/first floor of the addition is comprised of eight SRO units plus associated spaces. The project is an exciting step towards bringing this beautiful historic building back to life and expanding the YWCA’s services and capacity.
