Conceptual studies for a recruiting station & social hub
for the National Guard. The client requested prototype design for a hypothetical strip mall site and a freestanding building site with parking. Information and recruitment stations would be central to each location, and then various other facilities would be worked in according to the size of individual sites. Examples of these additional facilities include a climbing wall, fitness equipment, music stations to download songs, a cafe, a theater, and an interactive gaming area.To appeal to young people, RRA blended a retro, industrial feel with photovoltaic cells and passive solar energy, and played wood and natural materials against cutting edge, interactive technology.
