Goleta, CA, 2007
This 45,000 s.f. facility design expands the existing Girsh Park and overall athletic fields masterplan. The building contains a regulation size hockey rink with adjacent junior rink, lockers, café, clubroom, game area, offices, etc.
The design incorporates warm and cold areas allowing re-use of waste heat generated by air conditioning and ice-making. The north-facing sawtooth roof and bowstring trusses allow full daylighting with no direct solar exposure to the ice. Sustainable design incorporates photovoltaic panels, planted roofs, rainwater collection for park irrigation, and green building materials.
