After a search for the best possible result to ensure the equal view of the courts from different directions, the project has been generated by a geometric combination of badminton courts. Around ten badminton courts a circulation belt of 3m was formed, this is how spectators or athletes can freely move all around. This circular space was surrounded by a large triangle which forms three triangular areas around the circle. Thanks to this organization of space three spectator stands were generated all of which has different view directions to the courts. In order to assure the proper angle for the triangular stands to view the courts, they were elevated upwards and were connected with triangular trusses so each triangular space carries each other’s load. Thus a dynamic interior setting was formed.

Hicks Orthodontics is a comprehensive care practice with an existing location in Knoxville, Tennessee. In late 2012, BarberMcMurry architects was approached by the practice to help design a modern facility to house an expansion into an underserved rural location approximately 5 miles northwest of Lenoir City in East Tennessee. The client asked that the new building respect the warmth of the rural context while also providing a progressive image which aligned with their vision. Located off of U.S. 321, the site is situated for maximum visibility from passing traffic. The location is also strategically placed close to local schools to serve the orthodontic needs of that population. Adjacent parcels to the southeast remain undeveloped and densely vegetated. A gas station & convenience store is located on the parcel immediately to the west. We positioned the building away from the gas station and carefully placed programmatic elements within the building to leverage and focus views toward the natural landscape.
