White Rock YMCA
The YMCA was aiming to be part of a neighborhood where community members can walk and bike to the Y facility. With this in mind, our goal was to develop a facility that had the look and spirit of the neighborhood. With its close proximity to White Rock Lake and access from miles of hike and bike trails, the facility is designed to connect users to the natural environment. Nestled into the hillside, the building engages the site topography and takes advantage of second floor views of the Lake. The building is set back from the street to create open green space, preserving several large existing trees. The Cardio Room has a full length window wall, supplying an abundance of natural daylight and focusing views to the open green space.
