2020 Projects

Fall 2020: Clarkson Community Health Center

Clarkston Community Health Center (CCHC), founded in May 2013, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) clinic that provides a patient-centered medical home for low-income residents of the City of Clarkston and surrounding communities. CCHC was founded by Mr. Saeed Raees, the late Rev. Ben Johnson and Dr. Gulshan Harjee to establish a health center for uninsured and underinsured individuals in metro Atlanta. Currently, the clinic is housed in rented space at 3700 Market Street in Clarkston.  The space is inadequate to accommodate the growth of the clinic.  The board has acquired a site on which it intends to build a new building to house an expanded clinic.

Students worked with the community stakeholders to help determine the project direction for the Clarkston Community Health Center on its newly acquired site in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Over the course of the fall term, students engaged in site, precedent, and program analysis as well as developed an architectural and functional concept for the project.
