Adams County Arts Council Renovation

Gettysburg, PA

A Community-Focused Renovation

The Adams County Arts Council (ACAC) has selected Warehaus to redesign the front facade and roof of the Arts Education Center (AEC) located at 125 S. Washington Street. The redesign is necessary due to issues with an internal gutter system that resulted in significant water damage to the interior and delamination of the building facade.

ACAC sought out firms with a strong history of community-based design and innovative approaches to space utilization, and Warehaus demonstrated a deep understanding of the ACAC’s mission and vision for the future of the arts in Adams County.“We are thrilled to partner with Warehaus to renovate the façade and roof of our Arts Education Center,” said Lisa Cadigan, Executive Director of the Adams County Arts Council. “Erin Himmelberger and her team impressed us with their creativity, attention to detail, and commitment to quality work, while remaining mindful of the budget constraints of our nonprofit organization. We are confident that their work will address the necessary repairs while creating an aesthetic that reflects the creativity, connection, and high-quality arts programming we provide for Adams County.”The redesign of the AEC’s facade and roof is critical to ACAC’s ability to provide access to the arts at a facility that is safe and welcoming. ACAC provides a wide range of services, including art classes, exhibitions, culinary events, and other programs.

We design.

The proposed project involves replacing the existing thin brick façade on Washington Street with a new design that reflects the Mission/Vision of the Art program and enhances community visibility. Additionally, the water conveyance collection system along Washington Street will be modified to allow easy access and monitoring, while maintaining proper relief points and downspouts visible from the street.The materials and colors used in the new façade design are appropriate for the Gettysburg Design District and HARB sensitive, and existing lighting units will be redesigned to complement the new façade. The design will also support the display of artwork and incorporate identification signage, while considering fire code requirements and the potential modification of window patterns within the available budget. Aesthetic upgrades and maintenance evaluations will be carried out on secondary facades, including paint, parging repair, and sealants, while repairing water damage on the interior.
