Design Achievement – The Los Angeles Community Development Commission called for a master plan, programming, and design for a new community center located in a 9-acre park setting in Hacienda Heights. DLR Group's community workshops and visioning sessions helped the community prioritize and develop the building and site program with an emphasis on flexible multi-use community spaces. The design emphasizes light, volume, and indoor-outdoor connections taking advantage of local warm weather to allow the building's spaces to reach out to the community.
Scope of Services – The program elements for this 35,000 SF community center include a performing arts theater / multi-purpose room with retractable telescoping seating for performances, recitals and banquets/dining; multi-purpose rooms for meetings and fitness and dance classes; a catering kitchen; an arts and crafts room featuring a kiln; computer lab; outdoor amphitheater; outdoor basketball courts; and a jogging trail with fitness stations. As part of the master plan, a second phase building will include a full-size gymnasium on the current location of the outdoor basketball courts. DLR Group provided master planning, architecture, and interior design services.
