Creative Hub Worcester
The Creative Hub Worcester project is an amazing historic renovation of a brick colonial-revival style building in the heart of downtown Worcester. The building, which was design by Frost, Briggs, and Chamberlain and completed in 1914, was one of the original 15 Boys Club buildings that were developed across the U.S. Thousands of boys from the Greater Worcester area used the space until the 80’-90’s when the building was left unoccupied. Originally the building was a center that provided low cost educational alternatives such as vocational training, after school programs, and recreational activities for school age boys. Today and with the generous support of the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston and the Guild of St Agnes, the building will once again serve the community with new after-school programs, a daycare facility, rentable artist spaces, and event space that will serve the community as a whole. Architecturally we are aiming to preserve the original feeling and character of the building by using and restoring key design elements and keeping everything new in the building distinctly modern and unassuming so as to let the original building shine through.
