YMCA Montecito

Highly involved community members and a sensitive riparian stream ecosystem made this a challenging context for an ambitious re-building of na aging but well-used resource.  Located on a oxbow in a seasonal stream with mature Sycamore trees and Oaks the concept takes maximum advantage of the natural resources by strategically locating passive and active uses.   Outdoor yoga classes would take place under shade of mature trees by the creek while a children's play area and food garden are centrally located with the most exposure to active parts of the site.
