The Shambhala Meditation Center incorporated an existing, simple, 1950's commercial structure with a new 800 sf addition. Having been located next door in a 2-story house for the previous 20 years, the new center accommodates the community in a much more holistic way. A center, not only for meditation, but art and musical performances, it is a fresh addition to the evolving tapestry of downtown Lexington.
