Housed in an historic San Francisco firehouse, the master plan for the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center’s existing facility takes advantage of the large floor-to-floor volume to create new program space and to redefine under-utilized areas.  Innovative and creative solutions were necessary throughout the process to identify areas that could be better utilized and locations where additional program space could be added.


Features to be provided in the master plan include new counseling offices and group rooms on the ground floor along with a more inviting and functional reception/waiting area.  The existing mezzanine will be extended into a full second floor with staff offices and common areas, counseling rooms, and a children’s art gallery with a curved gallery wall.
