Project DescriptionFROM AIA GEORGIA:
The recreation facility project involved inserting a dense program into a surviving antebellum structure while incorporating a progressive and modern aesthetic. Major challenges included a short time duration, limited space and tight budget. Despite these challenges, design opportunities within existing space were optimized. The pre-civil war granite rubble wall, large expanse of clerestory glass and exposed wood/steel roof structure were identified as the major character-defining elements of the existing building.
