Gathering
Spaces

Various Projects
Philadelphia PA, Chicago IL,

Gathering Spaces are a particular specialty of ours at Derek Bloom Architects, and we are frequently called upon to create new gathering spaces or to renovate older ones. Often we will discover an underutilized space within a building, and transform it, giving the building new life. Whether we are reimagining an entry sequence, programming a new multipurpose lobby, modernizing an outdated exterior landscape, or creating an flexible activity space for a community; we take great pleasure in fostering community interaction. At left, we show a variety of such spaces from our realized projects.
