LAKE ELMO SWIM POND IMPROVEMENTS
Lake Elmo Park Reserve
Beach building & utility structures
Inspired by purpose and place, the beach building provides space for shaded sitting/eating, concessions, restrooms/changing, and lifeguard. Its location in the park reserve enables experiences discovering the landscape and participating in nature-based programming.
Materials include heavy timber (glued-laminated members), steel connections, metal roofing, wood siding, and simple, pitched roof forms that express purpose.
Spaces are located along a sheltered boardwalk, recalling a familiar beach front vernacular, providing intuitive wayfinding, and integrated into the existing trail.
The area also includes a themed play area, and structures to serve the pond filtration system.
