Hidden Creek Community Center featured on the cover of the October Issue of Athletic Business

We are honored to share the Hidden Creek Community Center is featured on the cover of the October 2021 Athletic Business Facilities of Merit issue. A 2021 Facility of Merit winner, the Hidden Creek Community Center is envisioned as a social, recreational and cultural heart of the growing Hillsboro, Oregon community. The community center is designed to intensify the experience of the site attributes as an extension of the natural park setting.  

“There is a nice warmth to the materials while still keeping a very clean, clear focus. Spaces are carefully organized to create a great relationship to the exterior. This is just a beautiful building inside and out.” – Facility of Merit Juror 

Innovative prefabricated building systems were utilized, including insulated tilt-up concrete walls formed on the concrete slab of the gymnasium and mass timber construction with cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels. As Athletic Business writes, “the center pays homage to its surroundings through innovative and artful exterior screening elements and substantial cross-laminated timber (CLT) treatments that greet visitors upon arrival, creating what one judged called ‘a very strong and poetic connection to its site.'”
