Lakeside Sports Complex
Matalon Architecture & Planning worked with the County of San Diego, as well as an appointed Community Design Committee, to develop this regional tournament complex in Lakeside, California.
The overall facility includes four baseball fields with stands, an infield practice field, tot lot, restroom and concessions building, as well as a maintenance/storage building.
The design of the restroom and concessions building integrated simple, low maintenance materials of concrete masonry units and standing seam metal roofing. Structural pylons along the northern face of the building served a secondary function as stanchions for flagpoles, which will carry the pennants of the teams that participate in the tournaments. During the regular season, the pennants of the league’s regular teams would be flown.
Los Robles Green Golf Course and Community Center
The 20,000 square foot facility at Los Robles Golf Course in Thousand Oaks, California provides the community with a pro shop, bar and grille, banquet facilities and cart storage. Through community workshops, and close work with a design committee from the City of Thousand Oaks, the design takes on a Romanesque vocabulary. A key element in the design of the building complex is the octagonal, stone clad bar and grille, which overlooks the 18th hole of the course. This taller element also acts as an orientation device for golfers at numerous locations throughout the course. The banquet facilities have become the premier place for weddings and social events. A remote rest room/snack bar building is provided along the course.
Oak Hills Park and Education Center (Joint-Use Project)
Located adjacent to Escondido’s Oak Hill Elementary School, this building and neighborhood park provide a facility that can be used both as an early childhood education center, as well as a “latch-key” facility for the community. As well, the facility is intended to be used as a public park on the weekends, and for community meetings in the evenings. The project’s 2,000 square foot building provides an office, activity areas, restrooms, and a large trellised eating area. The park portion of the project includes both hardcourt as well as turfed play areas.
Workshops with the community provided valuable input, assuring that this facility would address the opportunities and constraints of the site, neighborhood, and adjacent school.
Otay Valley Regional Park, Active Area lll
Working with the County of San Diego Parks and Recreation Department, Matalon Architecture and Planning created an assemblage of various spaces to support programs for a diversity of users within the community. The project components include a large central multi-purpose space with stage, several meeting/classrooms, an interpretive center, and an early childhood development center. The design vernacular was that of Early California Ranch to reflect the heritage of the Otay Valley. Utilizing the architecture and design elements of this early-day response to the climate (trellises, deep overhangs, arcades, thick wall massing, operable windows, etc.) the project is poised to be at a level of LEED gold.
This full service, 336-slip recreational marina is a quality addition to Port District Tidelands and to the City of Chula Vista. The building portion of this project includes a main one-story building cluster with three small convenience pavilions at more remote locations; all with varying roof heights of blue, metal hip-roof design. The use of varying roof heights gives ever-changing perspectives of the buildings to viewers on-sit and to passers-by as well.
The 13,000 square feet land improvements contain a Dock master’s office, a Brokerage, Sailing School, Boat Rental, Slip chandlery, Restrooms, Showers, Lockers, laundry, and a Boater’s Lounge. An archway-covered gallery exhibiting maritime artifacts ties each pavilion within the building together.
Salvation Army Camp and Conference Center
The Salvation Army’s new Sierra del Mar Divisional Camp and Conference Center encompasses 275,000 square feet of camping, activities, housing, and conferencing facilities on a 575-acre site in the Ramona area of San Diego County. The project comprises of a Cabin Camping component, an Educational Camp, a Tent Village, and a self contained Conference Center Support Structures include a Central Dining Pavilion, a Multi-Use Activity Center, a Central Pool, and Bath House, Administrative and Clinic Buildings, and housing for both seasonal and year-round staff.
Twin Creeks Golf Course Clubhouse
This 10,000 square foot complex houses a proshop, bar & grille, cart barn and maintenance facility for the City of Salinas, California. The building takes on an agricultural vernacular, to reflect the history of the Salinas Valley. The proshop is seen as the farmhouse, the bar & grille as the barn, and the central lobby as the silo.
Matalon Architecture & Planning worked closely with the community, through several workshops to arrive at a design that has been warmly greeted by its new patrons.
Willowbrook Estates Golf Course
Matalon Architecture & Planning worked with the owners of Willowbrook Estates Golf Course to replace their existing, out-dated facilities. The resultant facilities include a new two-story, 8,500 s.f. clubhouse, a 3,000 s.f. maintenance facility, and a 2,000 s.f. cart barn.
The clubhouse features a second floor Tournament Room and Bar, with two balconies overlooking the final hole, which is to be used by groups at the completion of their event.
The ground floor houses the pro shop, dining facilities and rest rooms for both the members of Willowbrook Estates, as well as the surrounding community.The owner’s request for a Tuscan Village theme for the project was accomplished through the use of offsetting planes, multiple roofs and massings, along with the integration of traditional
