Modus Studio | Green Forest Athletic ComplexProject Summary

The Green Forest Athletic Complex reshapes the vision of this small public school district’s athletic program with sleek color and form. Located to the south of the previously designed modern middle school, the new stands and press box continue the proportions and aesthetic which have become very identifiable sources of community pride within the Green Forest Public Schools Campus. By establishing a clear processional entry, the pulse of the athletic program is captured in a manner complimentary to the fervor that sporting events demand in small southern public school realms. This project redefines the athletic/academic edge of the campus and acts as a positive threshold for the multiple events and activities that take place on the site; An under-bleacher terrace offers space for fundraising and community activities that support the home team. The new design sports much-needed service facilities while the enlarged track, new stadium lighting and re-graded football field elevate the competitive game-play and hosting capabilities of the district.
