2011 Facility of Merit Winner: Mayor Sheila Doyle Russell Youth and Community Center

Flexible in use and sensitive to its residential surroundings, the Mayor Sheila Doyle Russell Youth and Community Center in Cambridge, Mass., serves an eclectic mix of users on three levels - a lower level housing private lounge and banquet space for the local VFW (along with underground parking), and two levels of highly visible community space. The various community spaces are located within and along a two-story glass spine that traverses the length of the building, culminating in the gymnasium, which is concealed within the contour of the site at the spine's far end. This distinctive civic presence gives way on the other side of the spine to a more residential character by using a rheinzink metal cladding system, which is similar in scale to the clapboard houses on the busy residential street.
