The 14,830sf facility has a decidedly casual and inviting vibe and incorporates unique spaces for teens and adults alike, with a large activity area focused on the children in the community. The building components are comprised of a series of spaces, reminiscent of casual beach cottages, clad in a combination of bright, colorful wood-look tiles, and integral colored stucco. A large community room and Poet’s Patio allow for views and break-out space to the adjacent Veteran’s Park.
The facility was designed as a Zero Net Energy building, meaning that the energy it consumes annually is offset by the energy produced by the roof-mounted photovoltaic system. It is also certified by the USGBC at the LEED Gold level.
