Bread For The City

MMD is the architect for Bread for the City’s new Southeast Center. The $10 million project will serve vulnerable members of the community with comprehensive services, including food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social services. This location will serve as the “flagship” facility for the organization.

The organization has a very specific process and culture, which has informed the design. The building is entered directly from the sidewalk, with retail programming on the first level and parking spaces located at the rear of the building. An elevator will provide vertical access to all four floors of the project. The modern design combines an open, welcoming feel with the appropriate context for the other community structures. The use of brick as part of the building facade not only provide a sense of continuity with the existing structures along Good Hope Road, but also a sense of security, rendering the main entrance facade as the view into the building’s interior space. The new facility will be more than two times the size of the existing facility, and will allow the organization to greatly expand both the depth and breadth of services offered.

(This project was initiated under Marshall Moya, but will be completed by Michael Marshall Design.)
