The concession building serves as an entrance point to the 15 soccer fields located within the Altoona Soccer Complex. It is a reflection of community pride. The program includes concessions, referee changing room, restrooms, and covered shelter.
A single white wall cuts through the canted buildings, implying a separation of purpose between the two buildings as well as a line of direction to the point of interest: the championship field. While the buildings remain as two separate structures, the configuration allows an integrated gathering space created by the shared efforts of the two buildings as they open towards the spectators and players as an offering of shelter. Materials chosen were a response to the client’s concern for a building which is low maintenance and resistant to abuse.
