Designed by Renaissance 3 Architects, the Kaufmann Program Center transforms a celebrated community landmark. This newly revamped community center is a model setting for musical, cultural, and arts performances as well as community events. More than 70,000 people each year seek help from the Hill House Association, a century-old nonprofit service organization in Pittsburgh’s most well-known African-American neighborhood. The existing building, in dire need of renewal, acted as a community gathering place for residents and civic organizations, and over the years has attracted notable musicians, authors, artists, and statesmen. As such, the project entailed an extensive gut of a dilapidated interior space and a comprehensive renovation for an auditorium, classrooms, café, and administration to reconnect the building to the community.
