Scope
Feasibility Study

When ZUMIX- an after-school program for youth that offers opportunities for music, songwriting and performance, acquired an abandoned firehouse, they saw the potential to transform it into a functional and inspiring cultural and performance arts space.

Over five weeks, Davis Square Architects helped several ZUMIX teens hone their ideas for the design of the space. Through touring similar local facilities and hands-on design charrettes, the team developed a set of recommendations on finishes, color, lighting, signage, storage and furnishings. The design concept reflects ZUMIX’s vibrant atmosphere and dedication to youth through a vivid palette of colors, recycled objects, and local artists’ pieces.
