The Goddard School of Philadelphia on Pine Street is a 2021 Grand Jury Award Winner.
The Atlantic is a 22-story Beaux Arts style building that is the former headquarters of the Atlantic-Richfield Oil Company. The iconic building was designed by Joseph F. Kuntz and is one of the most recognizable high-rises along the famous Avenue of the Arts on Broad Street in Philadelphia. Time had taken its toll on both the interior and exterior of the building, and its functionality had become outdated. In desperate need of renovation and repurposing, PZS Architects was hired as Architect of Record to further the vision of Design Architect Rafael Viñoly and renovate the interior into luxury apartments befitting of the building’s prominent location.

Located in Fitler Square, The Goddard School of Philadelphia is an Early Childhood Education Center that addressed the need for child care and pre-school services in one of the most family-oriented neighborhoods in Center City Philadelphia. The building is a former parking garage that PZS re-purposed into classrooms, offices, and a large multi-purpose space on the first floor.
