Expansion, New Construction, Site Improvements
Cuningham Group’s two-phase design for the Venice Japanese Community Center (VJCC) provided facility updates and an expansion opportunity for their popular martial arts program. Multiple site improvements, precision CMU, steel, and exposed wood surfaces were accomplished in Phase One. Replacing the one-story, wood-framed building housing classrooms and offices with a new two-story masonry building was accomplished in Phase Two. Sustainability features are also part of the larger plan for a facility that has served its community for over 75 years.
