City of Farmington, MO

Community Center

The City of Farmington, located 65 miles south of St. Louis, was experiencing tremendous growth. City leaders asked Hastings+Chivetta to develop a feasibility study and design a recreation center to meet the needs of the increasing population.

The 67,420-SF center includes a three-court gym with spectator seating for 4,000 for tournaments, entertainment, and exhibitions. Other recreation components include an exercise room, a weight training room, and an aquatic center with leisure and competition pools.

The Center has a seniors’ lounge offering health and wellness programs and space for youth activities. An over-sized two-story lobby provides space for 4,000 people, and includes a control desk, concession stand and catering kitchen. The building’s exterior features porches for shelter, an entry tower and a series of pitched-roof elements.
