river PRAIRIE CENTER
Inspired by Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the River Prairie Center in Altoona Wisconsin features elements of Prairie Style design. Low sloped rooflines and deep overhangs create a sense of grounding. Minimal ornamentation allows the building materials to speak for themselves. Strength is given to the building's appearance through the use of oversized brick veneer. Jogs in the exterior walls along with the use of piers provide depth and shade lines. River Prairie Center can accommodate up to 290 people and is a popular venue for weddings and corporate & social events. With unique details such as wood beams, fireplaces, and indoor & outdoor bar access, this versatile building is a community hub for gathering & celebrating.
