Project location: Phoenix, AZ
Date completed: 1995

• Renovation of 136 guest rooms

• 1.4 acre site planning project in downtown Phoenix

• Features include custom pools, pavilions, amphitheater, playground, volleyball courts, putting green and numerous specimen planting areas.

The renovation of the 136-room hotel and grounds was done from 1994 to 1995 in downtown Phoenix, and reworked the aging building and grounds into a fresh family-friendly environment complete with a number of amenities.

Custom pools and pavilions were designed alongside playgrounds, volleyball courts and planters. In addition, an outdoor amphitheater was designed and constructed in order to facilitate larger gatherings of people and provide an �anchor� for the outdoor spaces. Together with the putting green, the hotel grounds now provided an ideal location for conferences, retreats and special events of all kinds.

Project location: Williams, AZ
Size: 9,850 square feet
Date completed: 2006

• Clubhouse accommodates 400+

• RAR designs also include camper and staff dormitories and retail-type facilities

• Master-planning work on an established campus

RAR was brought into master-plan Young Life’s Lost Canyon camp after about half of the campus had been built up. We were tasked with the planning and design of the rest of the camp, including the main assembly building (“Clubhouse”) “Main Street Shops”, a staff dormitory, a laundry building as well as designing the interstitial spaces.

Working closely with the owner’s volunteer labor force, fundraising and governing board, we were able to provide designs to their specifications, and within their capability. The lands around the buildings we were able to use to form natural gathering areas and outdoor recreational spaces.

The clubhouse, especially, is an extremely professional setting for all their Audio/Video needs.

Project location: Flagstaff, AZ
Size: 28 acres
Date completed: 2006

• 2100 General Admission lawn seats

• 650 covered orchestra seats

• 6-10 serviced vendor spaces, 15-20 non-serviced vendor spaces

• Restroom, first-aid and concession facilities

• 60’x40′ covered outdoor stage with full A/V capabilities

Pepsi Amphitheater (formerly Pine Mountain Amphitheater) at Fort Tuthill Fairgrounds was an entire master-planned performance venue designed around a pre-existing stage at the fairgrounds.

The slope lent itself to a natural amphitheater, so RAR was able to design an outdoor stage roof and backdrop/performer’s prep rooms around the existing stage, and re-grade the site to allow for a path back up the hill to the concession/first-aid/restroom facility we designed as the entry element for all the venue amenities.

The amphitheater enjoys heavy use by a number of professional musicians every year.
