Roanoke House, the original Ronald McDonald House in Phoenix, recently debuted with an entirely new design, with designer and architect Daniel Germani of Daniel Germani Designs at the helm. The $500,000 renovation project was funded via the Phoenix International Raceway charity initiative that coincided with the track’s 50th anniversary.

The raceway joined forces with Germani to transform the space. The house, originally built in 1985, was re-imagined “into one that’s filled with light, color and happiness so children and their families could have a place of respite from the stress of treatments and surgeries,” says the charity.

“This was a deeply personal project and I’m so excited to have had a hand in its transformation,” Germani says. “The generosity of the Phoenix International Raceway and our brand partners, like Cosentino, WOLF/Sub-Zero and Sherwin-Williams, will impact thousands of families in Phoenix and beyond for years to come.”
