    Featured Project


    Fort Lee has been a United States Army post and headquarters since WWII and is home to almost 4,000 service members and their families. The growing on-base population – of troops, spouses, and children – sought more modern and higher-capacity recreational facilities. The Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) staff partnered with PMA Architecture to design a replacement for the base's aging 1970s bowling alley. The new facility - the TenStrike Bowling Center - is a friendly, contemporary, and more energy efficient building that provides an inviting, on-base recreational outlet. The design was carefully crafted to provide separate areas for troops and for service member family enjoyment.

    The new facility is exposed on the street side with a transparent skin, making the internal activity visible. A colorful membrane sculpture hovers above the reception desk. The interior is bright and vibrant - echoing the lively activity within the building.

    "The facility draws rave reviews and constant astonishment from the customer and visitor base. It is a model facility, testament to what can be accomplished when form of construction anticipates the intended function."
