Valley Community Center
West Des Moines, Iowa
Challenge: Create a community center for this fast-growing church to expand the services and programs they can provide for their congregation andthe surrounding community.
SVPA Solution: The new community center includes a gymnasium with two full-size courts, coffee shop and kitchen, children’s playroom, game room, classrooms and multi-purpose room. Warm wood accents throughout the facility provide a welcoming atmosphere. The exterior, a combination of veneer brick, veneer stone, metal panels, precast concrete and large amounts of glazing, allows natural light to flood communal spaces. A patio of stamped concrete provides a beautiful outdoor venue for gathering and fellowship.
