Lake Charles, Louisiana
Provide the residential community with a new Sports Facility that will be compatible with the scale of the neighborhood yet being distinctively identifiable as a community-wide amenity.
Using familiar materials and a residentially scaled form we gave the building an appropriate scale within the existing residential community. Architectural detailing was employed that gave the building a distinctly original and fresh look. Conceived as a black and white composition, the articulated exterior plaster walls combine with the multiple hip roofs and stainless steel curtain wall/front door to provide a very pleasant yet fitting contrast to the very traditional charm of the South Louisiana residential homes of the area.
