Fosco Park Community Center

Location:
1312 S Racine Ave, Chicago, IL

Project Description:
Constructed in a non-park setting, the Fosco Park Community Center was designed to be inviting, easily accessible and most importantly a place for learning and community togetherness. Covering half a city block, the 58,000 SF facility utilizes an energy strategy that exceeds the requirements of the city of Chicago's Energy Code. This was achieved with the use of double glazed low-E glazing and a low emissive/high reflectance roofing assembly. The large areas of glazing on the west facade serves a dual purpose: to provide for amble natural lighting, reducing the dependency on artificial lighting and also to provide thermal properties during the winter months. The design team worked closely with the client and the community to produce a building that met the needs of both. The Community Center meets the functional requirements required by the client well as creating a safe environment for the children of the community.
