2017, GOAT began working with the leadership of the Greater St. Mary Baptist Church to re-develop an old laundry facility into a new multi-purpose center for community events and outreach. The project will refresh the existing building’s exterior and create a large open plan on the interior, turning a blighted, vacant site into a beacon for the neighborhood. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2018.
By using inexpensive, industrial materials like OSB, the module will look right at home in the space of the shop. However, when the lights go down and the party starts, the module’s polycarbonate panels will glow like a beacon, visible from every corner of the space.
