CITY OF BEAUMONT ALICE KEITH PARK - Beaumont, Texas
The new 3,800 s.f. Community Center will serve the residents of the South Park area of Beaumont. The building is located at Alice Keith Park and is adjacent to a smaller existing building that is somewhat of an icon in the South Park neighborhood. The new Community Center is much larger and we were careful not to over power the old building by being sensitive to the architectural language scale, proportion, and relationship of both buildings. The two new buildings are joined by a loggia that covers an exterior courtyard. The existing building was renovated and is now home to a police substation. Part of the project was an existing art-deco pool entrance. Years ago, the old above ground swimming pool on site was replaced with a new modern pool. City leaders recognized the significance of the old entry and decided to keep it standing. We were able to preserve this beautiful piece of art-deco architecture and tie it into the site design of the project.
Construction Cost: $1,312,000.
