Emma Lou Olson Community Center

Pompano Beach, FL

Small or large, renovation of an existing space requires rethinking, often updating, reprogramming, and repurposing. The process involves thoughtful budgeting, planning, purchasing, and scheduling considerations—and creative inspiration and design. When the project is governed by a group or organization, consensus is a key factor. In this instance, the staff of the City of Pompano Beach's Parks and Recreation Department were consulted. Modernizing the Center's 1,300 SF lobby and reception area moved forward smoothly with a contemporary, clean-cut, neutral scheme presented by SRS. With pale gray walls, wood-toned plank style luxury vinyl tile, and durable, yet functional furnishings for the customer service, waiting, and pre-function activities for the lobby, the space offers a comfortable, appealing setting. Here guests can cluster, meet, and relax among small, interchangeable groupings of easy chairs and round coffee tables, sparingly accented with striking decor elements.
