The Food Bank of the Southern Tier outgrew its current facility and decided to renovate an existing warehouse to accommodate its current needs as well as its planned future growth.

The design addressed two primary goals of the Food Bank. One, to create space that is functionally efficient for staff, and presents a welcoming, and neighborly image to visitors and volunteers. And two, to reuse existing space wherever possible, being frugal with the selection of materials and finishes. The challenge from the client was to create an architecture to convey an image of creative, innovative and fiscally responsible operations.
