Edmonds Community Centre and Fred Randall Pool
To ensure that the Edmonds Community Centre and Fred Randall Pool met the neighborhood’s diverse demographics requirements, the facility’s design began with a large public engagement effort that included all essential stakeholders. The faculty is responsive to a wide range of user requirements. They have an aquatics facility, childminding and childcare, a fitness center, gymnasium, lounge, multipurpose space, playground, elderly and youth center, and various other services and amenities that integrate social, recreational, and cultural aspects.
The urban and low-rise context of a residential street to the south and a park setting to the north inform the facility’s architecture. This creates a dynamic transition between the calm and restrained Edmonds Street area and the more expressive urban area to the north.
An atrium-style lobby creates a pleasant space for staff, patrons, and visitors by providing transparency and links between major aspects of the institution.
