The project logo Big Idea #3 Design for Flexibility

Neighborhood centers can evolve...

Recreation centers like Tuckaseegee Center were built to meet community needs of the time - Check out all of those baseball fields!

As the community grew and changed, tennis became popular so the facility was renovated.

After 20 years of use, the Tuckaseegee Center’s outdoor facilities are becoming tired and indoor programs are constrained by the old building.

A renovation adds new multi-functional spaces while the landscape evolves to create more connections to surrounding neighborhoods and encourage flexible use.

Making Facilities Flexible!

Flexible spaces in recreation and senior centers can provide for a mix of uses from simultaneous fitness classes to a game of pickleball.

Adding just a few improvements (technology, operable windows, movable desks,etc) to centers can transform them into spaces for a greater mix of programs, like those shown above.
