On Nov. 30 Tam & Noll architects presented some preliminary plan exterior renderings and layout diagrams of two Hillview Community Center concepts…refining a Nov. 7 “triangle” floor plan the Hillview Task Force preferred then. On Nov. 30 the committee chose the C1 version of the two presented. I share the C1 slides with you below.
The new exterior renderings — still quite preliminary by the way — incorporate a Hillview Task Force preference for gable roof concepts with a contemporary feel. In the C1 concept some of the gables are so-called split roofs…with a celestory window down the spine. This permits natural lighting. T&N said there might be more glass shown now on exterior walls than an energy audit that they do later will allow.
Virtually all Hillview Task Force members like both concepts shown last night, but six of the nine members present leaned toward the C1. Members heaped praise on the architects and landscape designers.
Take a peek at the renderings below.

Thank god “we” made this progress. It’s looking more promising than I had dared to hope. Thank you Hillview Task Force members and chairperson Claudia Coleman.
