Visitor Center Wins INDesign Gold Medal Award

The St. Landry Parish Visitor Center was honored as the top design in architecture by The INDEPENDENT WEEKLY magazine at their annual INDesign Awards. The judges highlighted the successful integration of building and site which makes us feel pretty good about all the hard work and ambition contributed from our design team along with our collaborators Jeffrey Carbo Landscape Architects and Eddie Cazayoux of Environmental Design.
The Visitor Center is located just north of Opelousas, so the next time you’re on I-49 please drop by and get a great tour from the very friendly staff (and newly minted architecture advocates).

Lambright Sports and Wellness Center Opens Its Doors

We were excited to turn over the keys of the Lambright Sports and Wellness Center to Louisiana Tech and see them open the doors to their students. All of the speculation and theorizing that goes into a project of this scope is put to the test when we step away and the staff and students begin to make it their own. So far, the variety of recreation choices has already made Lambright a popular campus destination as the Center is becoming a place to see and be seen.

One of our primary collaborators, Dr. Jim King, Tech’s Vice President for Student Affairs offers his assessment, “This complex sort of screams at you to come have fun, feel better, and improve yourself overall at the same time.” King continues, “Our focus is beyond intramural play and recreation. It’s about health and well-being. We all perform better when we eat properly, exercise regularly and take care of ourselves, which translates into increased student retention and recruitment.”

A grand opening and dedication will follow in the fall academic quarter.
