The Jewish Child Care Agency commissioned KBA to prepare a 10 year master plan for its 1920’s Beaux Arts style, 45 building, 160 acre campus/residential facility for children & young adults. KBA worked to plan a modernization of the campus while maintaining the historic design of this landmark campus. The project buildings included the grand administration building ornamented with terra cotta decorations and Spanish tile roof. These are flanked by educational buildings adorned with open, dramatic, curving colonnades. These colonnades connect the main buildings with the 40 “cottages,” where the children & young adults live with faculty and caretakers.
