Work Program Architects is proud and honored to be a part of JT’s Camp Grom team helping to bring this camp to life. Camp Grom is located in the City of Virginia Beach on a 70-acre parcel of land on Prosperity Road. The Virginia Gentlemen Foundation envisioned a place where wounded veterans and their families – and kids with all types of disabilities and their families – could have fun, heal and enjoy outdoor activities: a day camp fully accessible to those in wheelchairs. The camp will include a Welcome Center, Wellness Center, Amphitheater, Cafeteria and Tiki Café, Lake with fishing pier, Adventure Ropes Course, Aquatic Center which will include a Splash Park and a Flowrider – surfing/body boarding feature. Clark Nexsen and WPL completed the master-planning and bridging documents. Ross Vierra, of Axis Global Enterprises, will be leading the entire team of architects, engineers, and contractors.
WPA is excited to be moving forward with our partners, MSA, Sinclair Pratt Cameron, GET, Within Interior Design and the Forella Group on the design phase of a new Skanska Marine Operations Business Office and Training Facility located at their Southern Branch Yard in Chesapeake.
WPA would like to say congratulations to our friends at New Earth Farm in Virginia Beach on their feature story ‘A Sustainable Life’ in Distinction magazine. We are excited to be working with them again on their latest hyperlocal venture: Commune Crepes.
Strolling by Nobile & Amundsen gallery, inside Monticello Arcade, anyone may peer through the large picture window and see an entire exhibition. And this final one for the gallery looks like no other show in Hampton Roads.
We’ve enjoyed this collaboration with MK Catering, CJW Contractors, and staff at The Community College of Baltimore County’s Owings Mills campus, and can’t wait to grab a coffee and some delicious treats once it opens.
Nobile & Amundsen began two years ago as an experimental collaboration with Work Program Architects to contribute to the art dialogue in Norfolk, VA. In that time we’ve been honored to work with talented artists near and far. Thank you, WPA, and everyone else that has supported us. It’s been a fun ride.
Our final exhibit, End Transmission, features artwork by:
Schuyler Beecroft, Hampton Boyer, Adrian Landon Brooks, Christiana Caro, Leigh Anne Chambers, Vittorio Colaizzi, Peter Eudenbach, Sheila Giolitti, Brad Hall, Randy Hess, David Johnson, Bob Lake, Nikki Leone, Christopher Mahonski, Wade Mickley, Daniel Moore, Thomas Moore, Suzanne Peck, Lee Piechoki, Charlotte Potter, John Roth, John Rudel, Tim Skirven, Jason Stick, Jordan Swartz, John Vitale, and Thom White.
WPA was contacted by Collins Enterprises to lead the public process portion of the Westport Commons and Watermark Apartments project. The project, begun nearly a decade ago, involves the demolition of 243 Navy housing apartments built in 1948, and the construction of 180 apartments, 68 townhouses, 70 condominiums, and various indoor and outdoor amenities.
WPA was selected by Pinecrest School to design a new Lower School in Annandale, Virginia to replace an existing school building. After touring the campus and meeting with teachers, parents, students, administrators, and the school’s board of directors, WPA worked with a group of Pinecrest stakeholders to design a facility that will fit the unique needs of the Pinecrest community; a community that emphasizes family involvement in education in an atmosphere that strives to support each student academically, socially, and emotionally.
