As an organization serving children and families struggling with neglect, abuse, and hardship, the Thompson Child and Family Focus Organization sought the services of Fryday & Doyne Architects to establish stable foundations for the communities and individuals they serve. The extensive services of the organization including: education, residential, foster care, early childhood care, and psychiatric therapy required careful planning and unique organizational options for three locations in North Carolina.
Wilkinson Boulevard Location Master Plan – CHA Properties
Fryday & Doyne, in concert with the Owner and staff leadership developed a written architectural program for facility buildings and the sites (illustrated as a diagram below to show functional relationships). The result of the programming exercise is a summary listing all the anticipated functional spaces and groups them by their uses, identifies/defines their relationships relative to internal programmatic concerns and the site in general. This list of required equipment and furnishings ultimately developed into the organization’s space standards used in all three facilities.
