OASIS Senior Center

The building and space program for this 36, 500 SF senior center was developed through a four month programming and planning process with the administration staff, the out-source program directors, the seniors and the Friends of OASIS.  Designed on the existing five acre site, the new facility increases the useable area of the existing center by 12, 500 SF and increases the parking by 60 spaces.  The new center is planned as a “campus” of individual buildings organized around a central outdoor courtyard. Each building houses educational classrooms, arts and crafts programs, health and fitness activities, social and assembly functions and administrative offices.  The architecture utilizes sloped roofs, wood trusses and beams, large windows and a combination of wood siding, fossil stone and plaster to relate to the surrounding residential neighborhood and create a contemporary environment with a traditional feel.
