Design / Aesthetics
The traditional mission style design of the building incorporates a terra cotta colored tile roof, cream-colored walls, sandstone colored base, dark window mullions, and green stone accent tiles. The building interior has similar finishes and colors that mimic the terra cottas and creams in the wall colors, carpets, and tiles.
The landscape was designed to incorporate a demonstration garden on the lower terrace, which can also be used as a teaching tool for nature camps. The multi-function plaza and landscape off of the social hall also includes a thematic re-creation of a "faerie ring" from Irish folklore. This element also functions as an opportunity for donor names for the Dublin Pride Steering Committee.
Ambrose Hall Detail
The Shannon Community Center is a premier rental facility in the region, and the cornerstone of this mission style building is Ambrose Hall. A 6,000 square foot events room that can comfortably seat 300 for dining, Ambrose Hall has floor-to-ceiling windows the length of the room that look out over a colonnade to the lush landscape and beauty of the creek. The natural wood trim, large wood cellar doors, and travertine wainscot provide Ambrose Hall with the elegance of a grand hotel or winery.
