re:SOUND music therapy clinic serves as a place of healing for all people in downtown Syracuse where the community faces an ongoing battle with mental illness. Located on M. Lemp Park, the project repurposes the existing building as a communal workspace for music therapists and visiting Syracuse Students. Above are the Communal Living floors and where the two volumes meet is a central gathering space for the entire tower. The auxiliary piece of the existing building is a public music rental center and below in the lower level are the public cafe and community stage. The project features three main performative walls which create a relationship of mass, surface, and void within each program of the building. The spaces are designed to allow individuals to express themselves both individually and collectively through acoustic experiences which can only be translated through a mass timber construction.
