   next   : :   back to Recreational menu


MCCM Architects, in association with Clark Condon Associates, provided programming and architectural and engineering services for the restroom/concession facilities Allen Station Park. Allen Station Park is a 109 acre park that follows the meanders of Cottonwood Creek in the center of the City of Allen and adjoins a educational complex that will include a new high school for 2,500 students. The City of Allen and the Allen Independent School District Board joined together to plan a combined 300 acre recreational and educational campus. The restroom/concession facilities serve a five-field baseball complex and a four-field softball complex that are part of the first phase of park development at the north end of the park property. A restroom/concession building is located in the hub of each complex. Separating each restroom and concession facility is a roofed pavilion with a structure of wood trusses that recalls the image of railroad architecture, a subtle theme that will be threaded throughout the park and incorporated in future phases of development. The pavilion provides protection from the elements and a place for informal gatherings and other activities where cover is desirable. Included with each restroom/concession complex is storage for supplies and equipment used in park and ball field maintenance. Exterior construction materials consist of brick walls with stone wainscots and precast concrete lintles which are compatible with the proposed architectural fenestration of the adjacent high school facilities.
