Seaside town to get replacement senior center
Construction is expected to commence in March on Newport Beach, Calif.’s Oasis Senior Center, a $21 million, 35,000-sf replacement facility that will house educational classrooms, art and crafts programs, health and fitness activities, social and assembly functions, and administrative offices. Designed by local firm Robert R. Coffee Architects, the facility will be composed of three buildings situated around a central landscaped courtyard. The facility’s exterior design—with sloped roof forms, exposed wooden trusses and beams, large windows, and a combination of wood siding, fossil stone, and plaster—takes cues from the surrounding architecture. Irvine, Calif.-based gkkworks is construction manager.
