University of Maryland Baltimore Community Engagement Center

In response to growing needs, The University of Maryland Baltimore purchased the historic 16 S. Poppleton Street St. Peter’s School as the home of a new Community Engagement Center. The design challenge was to honor the past through the preservation of the building’s historic nature, while celebrating and supporting a promising future to local residents. The 21,000 square foot interior renovation provides neighbors with resources to find jobs, safe places to learn and grow, adequate space for health and fitness programs, and opportunities to gather together as a community.
