The City of Fircrest identified the aging community center and pool as the highest priority in their PROS plan.  To gather community input, ARC and the design team facilitate 5 public meetings during concept planning, and building and pool design phases.  The meetings were well attended with lively discussion and lots of interest and ideas.  The design team worked with a Steering Committee, Parks Department, and City Council to include ideas and address project concerns.  The site is a beloved and well used park in the heart of Fircrest.  The design places the buildings at the edge of the park to preserve the green space for events, sports, and community activities. 

The building design uses simple roof forms that step down to the park with exposed wood structure that connects with nature.  The new spaces will open up and connect to the park, adding more plaza and clear views of park.   Fircrest hosts many community events at the park and these new buildings will be a wonderful asset for generations.
