THE DAILY REPORTER TOP PROJECTS 2021
Kathy’s House, a non-profit, hospital guest house in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, opened a new 30,000 SF, two-level facility located on the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC) campus, adjacent to Froedtert Hospital in the summer of 2021. Kathy’s House provides lodging and a supportive environment to those experiencing personal illness and for the families impacted by the serious illness of a loved one. It is a place to heal where guests can eat, sleep and be with others when they choose, or be alone when they need solace, introspection, and quiet healing. CG Schmidt partnered with HGA Architects on this accomplishment.
In collaboration with CG Schmidt and Groth Design Group, Cedarburg School District examined instructional, and facility needs at all five of the district’s schools. The team developed a LRFMP focused on anticipated growth, current and future needs of teaching and learning, and safety and security improvements. At Cedarburg High School, the team added classrooms to accommodate the District’s growth, a new cafeteria, an updated Tech Ed wing, collaboration spaces and project-based instructional spaces, upgraded security, improved egress routes to alleviate congestions, improved traffic flow and controlled after-hours access.
The St. Joan of Arc Chapel is the heart of the Marquette University campus. The chapel is a place of community drawing people of all backgrounds and faiths. Originally built in France in the 1400s, the 600 plus year-old structure fell into disrepair and was dismantled and taken to New York in the 1920s and then gifted to Marquette University in the 1960s. Representing faith and hope, the structure carries a rich history for the Marquette community. Restoration of the structure was dedicated to preserving the chapel’s medieval architecture, including lintels, ceiling, flooring and roof preservation and improved accessibility by accommodating paths, surfaces and steps on the chapel grounds, which lead through the adjacent Marian Grotto.
