Greensboro Boys and Girls Club

Greensboro AL / 2012 / Thesis Project

Over the last two years the Studio has been working with the City of Greensboro, the newly-formed Boys & Girls Club of Greensboro, and the West Alabama Boys & Girls Club to find an appropriate location for the newly chartered Boys & Girls Club in Greensboro.Rural Studio has designed an 8-phase, 5-year plan for the conversion of the under utilized City Armory into both a Boys & Girls Club and a Recreation Center. The plan has been embraced by the local city and county administrations with the commitment of financial support.

The first phase started in September 2011, when the Boys & Girls Club officially moved into the Armory. Over the next two years a 5th year team will design and build an extension to the existing Armory compound, providing a new, but separate Boys & Girls Club facility.During construction of the Boys & Girls Club wing, the two organizations will share the Armory building and gymnasium. Rural Studio will also complete the renovation of the Armory building over the next 5 years.
