Coeur d’Alene Kroc Center wins architecture award!

Submitted by on January 10, 2011 – One Comment

The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho won a prestigious award at the end of last year: out of 87 contenders across North America, the center was named the 2010 Athletic Business Facility of Merit!

The 123,000 square-foot center used local materials including stone, CMU, wood, laminated timber, tinted and insulated glass, and corrugated metal siding to create a rustic and informal space that reflect the character of the Inland Northwest.

Multiple community functions — church, education center, performing arts facility, recreation and aquatics center – come together to make the Coeur d’Alene Kroc Center. This center is one of many made possible by the generous $1.6 billion estate gift of Joan B. Kroc, widow of McDonalds founder Ray Kroc.

Congratulations to the design architects from the firm of Barker Rinker Seacat in Denver.
