This LEED Silver building was built to facilitate the mission of the Corps at Lake Shelbyville and reflect the design motifs of the early 20th century through the use of heavy timber, traditional red brick, and formal gardens and circulation routes.
The Lake Shelbyville Visitors Center consolidates the local Corps of Engineers functions into a single building. The new two-story combined visitor center replaced the existing visitor center.
The main level of the new structure includes a reception area and Grand Lobby. The Grand Lobby allows access to the Exhibit Room, display area, a small meeting room, the large auditorium, and the remaining restrooms and functional spaces. The second level of the structure accommodates the office functions of the local staff including private offices, an open office layout, break room and patio, and a conference room. Additionally, the building is situated on the site to allow expansive views of the lake from an exterior patio and outdoor classroom.
