Freedom Community Center

Sited on the axis of the adjacent Veterans Memorial, the Center acts as an extension of this unique element with its display areas and gathering spaces. The interior contains two assembly spaces for nearly 300 people and offer a stage-like setting for outdoor performances. The regional design of the entrance reflects the traditional context of the County’s park structures, while the building as a whole incorporates the latest in energy efficient building systems and sustainable materials for Green Globes certification.

Kingsley Cove Community Center

Monarch designed a neighborhood amenity center that captured the elegant yet neighborly tone of The Cove at Kingsley Lake, a luxury residential community in Clay County, Florida. Focusing on the goal of community growth alongside the scenic lakefront development, Monarch chartered an architectural character for the amenity center that prioritized quality materials as well as sophisticated yet simple detailing. The center includes fully tiled restrooms, showers, an outdoor kitchen and entertainment area, and a sun deck that terraces down to the beach. Low maintenance and durability were achieved with composite decking, stainless steel fitting, LED lighting, and environmentally responsive building forms. Monarch delivered a design and experience that met and exceeded the expectations for the amenity center.

Oak View Park (City of Gainesville)

To create a neighborhood center envisioned by the Kiwanis Girl Scouts, Monarch developed a plan for renovations to the 2821 S.F. single story CMU building. While every renovation needed to meet code, each renovation also offered the opportunity to design a space for community and togetherness. Renovations included new porches, interior finishes, building envelope renovations, MEP system engineering, accessible parking and route. Monarch completed the project with an eye to detail and functionality.
