The McCormack-Matthews Head Start Center is a cornerstone of the historic Rosemont Commons redevelopment project in the Piedmont neighborhood of North Portland. The 14,000 square foot center includes three preschool classrooms and three infant/ toddler rooms. The two-story the administration area includes a computer/adult classroom, a parent multipurpose room, teach workroom, and offices.
There were several key design elements that drove the design: Daylighting, Natural Ventilation, Acoustic Quality, and Interior/Exterior Connection.
