INTERACT

STUDENT CENTERS - SENIOR CENTERS - COMMERCIAL - HEALTH/WELLNESS - PUBLIC SPACES

A fundamental human need is to be in community with others. At MCF, we understand this need, and create vibrant projects that are both interactive and comfortable, allowing people "to see and be seen". Whether it is a casual encounter or planned gathering space, our designs bring people together.

UNITED SENIOR SERVICES

MCF’s design transformed an old, dreary Eagles Lodge into a safe community asset with light-filled, vibrant spaces. The new building encourages fellowship, focuses on wellness, and offers support for people aged 55+ in a safe, secure and technology-friendly environment. Relocating the existing USS Center to increase usable space and amenities involved the entire community and contributed to the downtown revitalization.

Wellness Center

ANTIOCH COLLEGE

A 1929 structure, the Curl Gymnasium was in a state of disrepair. Antioch understood they had an opportunity to create a space not only for students but for the community at large. The renovated Wellness Center, now boasts memberships by a large number of Yellow Springs residents and has become a hub for community involvement. The new facility is spacious and designed to preserve historic architectural elements (such as the Gilbert Wilson mural in the East Gym) while incorporating modern amenities like a state-of-the-art fitness center and group studio spaces.
