Barry Farms Recreation Center

A new 46,000 sf single-level community recreation facility located in the Barry Farms neighborhood in Southeast Washington, DC.  The masonry building’s layout has three “pods,” the main pod (gym, entry and lobby), a central pod (community use rooms), and a third pod housing the pool house and mechanical rooms with a rooftop playground.  A courtyard provides additional external space, serving as an outdoor room.

The project features an 11,000 sf full court gymnasium, an enclosed natatorium with slides, multi-purpose rooms, teen and senior rooms, a computer lab, gamer area, locker room, kitchen, and a single-story attached parking garage with dual outdoor basketball courts above.  Additional roof space is utilized for a terrace/tot lot and green roofs.
