Westport Weston Family Y Master Plan
Apicella + Bunton was engaged to design a master plan that built upon the existing character and fabric of the pedestrian friendly, downtown neighborhood of historic Westport, Connecticut.
Apicella + Bunton collaborated with a private developer to create a new retail and residential destination that could adaptively reuse the existing, historic Westport YMCA building. Our proposal calls for converting the existing building into retail space, with office space above. A new structure will house additional retail and townhouse configured residences.
The new structures will reference the architectural language of the original YMCA building but will embrace a modern idiom, related to the eclectic style and scale of Westport.
