The Hacienda Futsal Court is completed in Northeast Portland, and a major addition to a park deficient area of Portland. The community-funded project was designed by Scott Edwards Architecture, the simple weather-proof open structure provides a safe spot for young ones in a park-deficient area to burn off some extra energy. The building also features some limited green roof bands, installed by Green Above Ground partners Snyder Roofing of Oregon, Teufel Landscape, and Verde. Parts of the roof (still to be planted), which should be visible at times along the edges from Killingsworth while further aiding in stormwater reduction.
The structure is tucked next to an the existing Hacienda building, so site access is limited, but offered room for a couple of simple and inexpensive moves give some sustainability and usability to the court. To save money, the goal was to have zero net runoff, so the site areas on the main entrance is a simple walkway of permeable pavers, to avoid the need for additional stormwater management by reduction of impervious surfaces.
And while there isn’t a lot of extra room inside the court, this is remedied by a simple vegetated berm with columnar trees along the edge provides a comfortable seat for folks to take in a game, and will be a comfortable buffer between a proposed building to the west (left side of the view below).
