Laurel Design Alliance, Inc. provided design and construction administration services for the 22,000 sq. ft. facility located on Watkins Park Site in Prince George’s County. The spacious site will also provide softball, soccer and football fields, and volleyball courts at a later date.
The project comprises of a gymnasium, exercise, arts and crafts and game rooms, and a multipurpose hall, which can be divided for aerobics, dance and conference areas. The facility also accommodates a preschool classroom with a dedicated play area.
The plan exploits the views offered by the site. The design provides an abundance of natural light for the gymnasium and common areas through the skylight and clearstory windows. The facility has a sheltered entrance, which offers protection from inclement weather.
