The Lakewood YMCA, constructed by W. L. Butler Construction, Inc., received a Merit Award in the commercial category at the AIA Long Beach/South Bay 2015 Design Awards. “This community facility renovation is quite elegant. The transparent facade is very inviting to the public and we appreciate the
amount of daylight it provides to the large interior space. We enjoy the connectivity of the interior to the exterior and to all of the necessary spaces for what this facility offers. The architect, Studio One Eleven, used a fair amount of restraint in the design that would be required for a project of this nature.”
