The Bill Crisp Senior Center is a single-story building designed to cater to the needs of the senior population in Fayetteville, NC.

The facility includes an open lobby, a large multi-purpose room, a warm water exercise pool, commercial-grade kitchen, flexible classroom/meeting space, locker rooms, and offices. The center is located on a 27-acre lakefront site, designed to capture the scenic surroundings of Lake Rim, with windows extending along the building and a large patio maximizing the opportunity for outdoor activities.

The design team utilized universal and aging-friendly design opportunities, including ADA accessible site amenities, no-trip and no-slip hazard floor finishes, visually distinct surfaces, sensitive lighting levels and acoustics, wide corridors, and senior-specific restroom accommodations.

The Bill Crisp Senior Center is a welcoming and inclusive space designed for maximum flexibility and usability for everyone in the community to enjoy. While the primary focus is to cater to seniors, the center is designed to be accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
