BREC Independence Park Recreation Center
This existing hanger at a former airport site has served the local community as a converted recreational facility for many years. Because of its prime location and increased usage, the owners charged the architects with upgrading the appearance and achieving maximum usable area at minimal cost.
The unique barrel-vaulted hanger space and corner turrets were retained due to their recognizable character and place of history to the city. The hanger space was wrapped on three sides with new multi-purpose spaces, a tennis pro shop and support facilities. The hanger space continues to function as indoor tennis courts.
