Kelly Road Sports Park is a former landfill that was encapsulated and converted to a soccer complex for league play and regional tournaments. Four buildings were designed for the site with primary emphasis on provision of shade and shelter for this open. treeless site. The central building houses concessions, restrooms, office space, a meeting room, and press box. A sixteen foot deep veranda wraps the three building sides facing the playing fields while the fourth face presents a playful and monumental wall towards the large parking area. The breezeway through the center of the ground floor is reminiscent of· a grand stadium, providing a processional entry to the event space and access to public facilities.
