The design of this contemporary, multipurpose recreation and community facility achieves a unique dynamic between the interior and exterior spaces. The building incorporates an urban “loft” feel through the use of exposed structural elements, finished concrete flooring and metal/wood accents to standard Drywall finishes. The plan includes an activity/presentation area and interior cafe and lounge area where social events may be hosted and small groups may conduct meetings, craft circles, do homework, and other activities. Outside cooking grills and event area combine with lush gardens to seamlessly integrate all spaces and weave the project into the neighborhood landscape.
