North Domingo Baca Multi-Generation Center Phase III

North Domingo Baca Multi-Generation Center Phase III

Phase III (approximately 14,000 square feet) is currently in design and will add a two-story gymnasium with an indoor track on the second floor, office for gym staff, a climbing gym and an outdoor playground to the building’s west end, where exterior rooftop balconies provide a segue from existing to new. These programmatic requirements represent a wonderful opportunity to find a form that reflects the inner workings of the building. The elegant curved exterior wall of the gymnasium not only invites guest into the property, but reflects the flowing nature of the North Domingo Baca Park as a whole. The gymnasium for the Multi-generational Center will be designed to meet NCAA requirements. A 10 foot buffer space will be incorporated on all sides. The floor will also accommodate volleyball, pickle ball and shuffleboard. Bleachers will be included on both long sides of the court. Approximate seating will be between 300 and 500 people. The Running Track is off the second floor and overlooking the Gymnasium will be an elevated running track. Areas will be incorporated to allow for rest alongside the track. The amazing views from the second floor will be taken advantage of. The Rock Climbing is a permanent room off the gymnasium that takes advantage of outdoor area adjacencies. A Walltopia climbing wall system will be permanently installed and includes all accessories needed. Different levels of expertise can be selected. Outdoor Areas include Play courts, garden, and/or amphitheater and additional plantings and irrigation systems are mindful of the capacity and of the existing cistern and pump system. Shade will be an important factor at this west facing area.
