Scott Kyle, Project Manager/Designer (while with BCWH Architects)

Mr. Kyle was the project manager (through DD)/designer as part of a team that included a principal-in-charge, an intern architect, and an interior designer. Lobs & Lessons is a Community program of VCU promoting life skills development through the medium of the sport of tennis to disadvantaged youth in the Richmond metropolitan area.

The final site on the VCU campus was ideal from a programs standpoint, exposing children to the university setting and university students and athletes to the children. The product was a 5,400 sf, $1.5 million structure of two, two-story spaces that allow differentiation between classrooms, offices, and meeting spaces, and the benefit of greater acoustical separation, and a building that serves as a gate to the tennis courts at the perimeter of the property.
