Jack Woods Senior Center and Municipal Complex. “Township Complex Will Bridge the Past and Future.”
Pascack Valley Community Life.
Following an extensive search, the Township selected Morpurgo Architects to design a multi-use facility encompassing their historic one-room school house. The Complex incorporates a Municipal Building, Police Headquarters, Court Chambers and the Jack Woods Center for the Township’s 1,700 seniors. During construction, we met the challenge of keeping all municipal functions operative on site.
Morpurgo Architects unified two non-adjacent buildings of incompatible design into a functional, aesthetic entity. To maximize the vista of an obscured lake, we added a level to reveal a full water view through an arched window that brings transparency to Municipal deliberations.
According to the Mayor, Morpurgo Architects’ resourceful design put their town “on the map” and raised the standing of their community in the State. They have continually returned to our firm as the needs of the Township have evolved.
