St. John Neumann Place I

The transformation of former St. John Neumann High School required the demolition of the school gym, auditorium and priory.  The remaining classroom area was converted into 65 one-bedroom apartments.  The renovated facility includes community rooms, gathering areas on each floor, along with social services and management offices, off-street parking and green space.

The creation of St. John Neumann Place provides seniors with a warm, welcoming environment through the use of earth tones and rich wood details.  Entries were created in the shape of peaked roofs to mimic porches.  This traditional language of design imparts a sense of home.
