SALVATION ARMY EAST CLEVELAND CORPS
VAA provided architectural and design services for the new Salvation Army Cleveland East Side Corp facility, one of four facilities outlined in their $35 million capital campaign. VAA designed a large worship center to act as the focal function of the space with secondary areas featuring a community center, food pantry, recreational spaces, as well as designated areas for senior programs and childcare.
VAA’s designers were able to create unique and flexible education and learning spaces for the Salvation Army’s “Learning Zone” programs, which feature collaborative furniture, movable partition walls, and color coordinated classrooms to assist with wayfinding. Special considerations were taken to design with durability as a priority. VAA incorporated floor options that did not require waxing or polishing as maintenance, such as an environmentally friendly quartz product and state-of-the-art carpet that can be clean with a mop. In the gymnasium, we installed a resilient flooring that could withstand excessive rolling loads from various equipment.
