Link Piazzo Youth Center

Built: 2003

Location: Reno, Nevada

The Link Piazzo Youth Center at the former Reno YMCA is an 11,000 square foot addition that includes activity areas and a youth gym.

This addition helped the former YMCA of Reno to expand its many services they offer while bringing the older facility up to speed with the ever-changing times. The current facility is used for youth before- and after-school programs, summer day camp programs, and youth basketball, as well as serving as an additional multi-purpose space.

The architectural style of the Youth Center represents an exciting new direction for the area. The architecture is contemporary and dynamic, giving a new face to the youth facility and setting a precedent for future additions.
