Kenmore Hangar morphs depending on weather conditions or functional requirements

Graham Baba Architects designed a 5,000-square-foot community gathering space in downtown Kenmore that functions as a symbolic living room for the city. The Kenmore Hangar is a recreational venue that also provides a home for nature in the rapidly growing community. It has been designed to morph depending on weather conditions or functional requirements, with a partitionable, multi-use assembly space for gatherings, music performances, dance classes, movies, and other events. Integrated wooden lockers provide storage for community groups and activities such as yoga and club meetings.

The Kenmore Hangar opens onto the Town Green plaza via a 24-foot-wide by 16-foot-tall bi-fold window wall, and when it gets dark the extensive glazing transforms the structure into a lantern.
