Celebrating the public opening of our new welcoming lobby
Back in March 2020, shortly before everything shut down due to Covid-19, the lobby renovation at our Clay Street office was completed. This week, over TWO YEARS later, we finally held a dedication ceremony and presented the designers from MBH Architects with a plaque of appreciation. Tammy Ng, Ken Lidicker, Kevin Koblik, and Hillary Thompson created the welcoming and whimsical scene in the lobby of our Clay Street office, which houses most of our programs.
Families and child care providers coming to the Joy Lok Family Resource Center, Child Care Resource and Referral, toy lending library, Early Learning Scholarships, Child Development program, and Child Care Provider Services enter through the lobby, and the Lok Yuen Early Learning Center children pass through on their way to the rooftop yard every day. We’re so glad to once again be welcoming families and clients to our program offices, and especially to have this welcoming first impression.
We’ve had a great response from staff, families, and the children who see the lobby every day, and it was a treat to welcome the designers of the project to finally see the finished product and have the official “ribbon cutting” dedication.
Special thanks to John McNulty, founding principal of MBH, for his support of this project. John’s history with Wu Yee goes back decades, to the construction of our Generations Early Learning Center which shares space with On Lok Senior Housing on Montgomery and Broadway (hence the center’s name “Generations”).
Thank you, John, Tammy, Ken, Kevin, Hillary, and the team at MBH Architects, for the lovely lobby redesign!
