Friday has been working with Scout to re-imagine and re-plan a glorious former Philadelphia Public School Building. The “Building Bok” project involves renovations to 350,000 square feet to provide community amenities, artists space and a boutique hotel.
Friday has been selected to work with Haverford College on two projects. The first is a greenhouse and classroom building for the Environmental Studies program. Friday is exploring designs that reuse salvaged construction materials from other campus projects. The second project is the creation of an outdoor student lounge space just outside the Haverford Dining Hall. More to come on both these as they develop
Friday has been working with a private developer to prepare plans for twelve to twenty new units of housing in West Philadelphia. The homes are intended to be affordable for median incomes and target service workers and others who support and bolster the economy. The units will likely be built using modular construction.
Friday is working with a developer to convert a 130,000 sq ft former factory building into Artists space. The project will feature a major event space and rooftop deck with views to Center City. More to come this summer.
