Winner: American Society of Interior Designers: 2016 Georgia Chapter Design Excellence Award – Bronze Award
The new JA BizTown and Finance Park for Gwinnett County, 30 miles north of Atlanta, is strategically located inside the 2,000-student Berkmar/Central Gwinnett High School. The Junior Achievement Gwinnett Discovery Center serves 30,000 Gwinnett Country middle school students every year. Leveraging the JA Atlanta Discovery Center experience, RJTR was responsible for conceptual and design services for the facility. RJTR worked closely with the high school’s architect-of-record and provided design services for sponsor stores, branding and fit-up. Suwannee City Center inspired the design concept for JA Finance Park’s “city of tomorrow” creating a more modern city where these students will be working someday. Gwinnett’s Lawrenceville Historic Courthouse Square provided the JA BizTown central courtyard concept. Additional modern “store” building facades acknowledge Gwinnett’s expanding corporate technology company community.
