Carnegie Restoration

Status: Completed
Type: Historic Preservation, Tenant Improvement, Community Center

A staple of Everett’s identity rests on this hill next to the Snohomish County campus. For over a century, this iconic building has served many purposes from its origins as a library, to a funeral parlor, Work Release facility and most recently, storage for a local museum. Hoping to regain some of its original splendor, Capital Architects was brought on board to oversee restoration to the masonry, windows and lentil molding at the exterior, along with an interior renovation to transform it into the Community Resource Center.
The Community Resource Center will serve adults involved with the criminal justice system as well as adults with substance abuse and/or mental health issues. The Carnegie Building will house the Community Resource Center and is conveniently located next to the jail and across the street from the Human Services Department. The main floor of the building will offer a variety of medical and behavioral services while the lower level will provide county services for diversion from jail and/or re-entry into the community.
As this building is on the National Register of Historic Place, care will be taken to retain the appeal of the original structure and elements.
