Watauga Community Center
Watauga, TX
27,527 square feet
City of Watauga

The community center includes a gym, weight room, offices, classrooms, art room, and a multi-purpose room with a kitchen. This facility is the first part of a revitalization to an existing park facility, future expansion of the facility is designed for as the community's population and needs of the area grow. The design incorporates multi-layered roof planes allowing north and south clear story windows strategically placed to evenly distribute natural lighting throughout interior spaces. Large windows on the south side with wide overhangs give additional openness to activity rooms and classrooms. The gym was placed on the north so that tall windows with fin columns would allow ample view of outdoors without intrusion of direct sunlight.
