THE RESOURCE AND CRISIS CENTER OF GALVESTON COUNTY
RENOVATION + REHABILITATION
The RCC Campus is an adaptive reuse of an existing middle school campus that has been vacant since Hurricane Ike (2008). Originally a catholic school, the campus includes a combination of circa 1900 Spanish colonial/Gothic style buildings and mid-century schoolhouses and accessory buildings. A new, double height lobby addition connects one of the older buildings with a mid-century mod classroom building. The project site’s residential zoning designation would prohibit the project, however, the city’s Planned Unit Development zoning was sought in order to allow for the intended use, which involved several public city hearings. Easterwood Architects Studio led the client through the approval process, and we were successful in acquiring the PUD.
