Eunice City Lake

DESCRIPTION

The Eunice City Lake Recreational Facility is sited on an undeveloped portion of the Eunice City Lake, comprised of a main pavilion, restroom pavilion, boat launch, fishing piers, and picnic shelters. The aesthetics infuse the vernacular structures of the agrarian silos dotting the surrounding farms with the simple anatomy of the native Loblolly Pines. The oversized roof canopies float in the air as the metal and concrete branch-like columns gently touch the ground. The use of various masonry textures assist in breaking down the minimal design to blend within the context of the site. The linear landscaping beds compliment the architectural spaces while naturally filtering the rainwater. The recreational facilities, along with the fully stocked lake, provide the residents with numerous avenues for recreational activities.
