Pecan Park Gym

The Pecan Park Gymnasium is a 9,000 sq. ft., full court gymnasium with bleacher seating, bathrooms, storage, and office space residing in a well-used park near downtown Los Angeles. A series of simple forms surround the gym’s entry, progressing in size toward the larger volume; a graduation of scale is witnessed from the exterior. The interior is naturally lit by clerestory windows in raised, geometric forms. The facade of the building is graphic in concept with patterned masonry walls and textured corrugated metal siding. An additional layer of graphic identity is provided by large signage elements on two of the facades.
