Department of Youth Services


Location: Middleton, Massachusetts

The State Department of Youth Services rehabilitated its Middleton campus to create a regional office alongside a short-term home for juvenile delinquents on land once part of the Danvers State Hospital.

Copley Wolff Design Group’s site design is comprised of a recreational yard containing a 1/6-mile track; a greenhouse with adjacent programmable space for a garden; a ½ -basketball court; two handball courts; a passive lawn area; multiple pieces of exercise equipment; and an exterior seating area adjacent to the cafeteria. In addition, Copley Wolff designed the parking and drop off areas; pedestrian routes; and plazas for gathering and seating.
