Grace Centers of Hope Daycare Addition
Grace Centers of Hope recently converted a former Pontiac church into the William A Davis Women & Children’s Center. They are now studying plans to build an addition that will include an increase to the women and children’s program and add their day care program.
The 15,000 square feet, 2-story addition will emulate the building form of the church with similar massing and materials. The addition will be clad with brick masonry, cement fiber panels and a pitched shingled roof. Placement of the new addition creates a courtyard to allow natural light to reach the upper level bedrooms in both building and 1st floor classrooms. Dormers in each bedroom lessen the mass of the large roof plane. A cantilevered window seat added to the second floor common area provides an enjoyable view of downtown Pontiac.
