Eglin Air Force Base Temporary Lodging Facility

Eglin AFB, Florida

LEO A DALY’s design for three separate Temporary Lodging Facilities focuses on sustainability and creating a sense of community.

Three buildings and their parking lots are arranged to preserve the site’s many mature trees, optimize solar orientation and maximize views on the sloped site. Gabled roof forms feature overhangs, dormers and clerestory lanterns that bring natural light deep into the building.

The design orients the lodging facilities in an overlapping fashion, which optimizes energy efficiency and creates a series of courtyards and linked pedestrian walks connected to an existing trail system.
