Community Foundation of Acadiana
Location: Lafayette, Louisiana
The Community Foundation of Acadiana was established to enhance philanthropy in the region and become the vehicle through which charitable dreams are realized. Located on Camellia Blvd in River Ranch, the new building for the Community Foundation of Acadiana will provide a prominent place for donors to
establish a relationship with the foundation and build a legacy. CFOA required a structure that is a tangible expression of the values of the foundation. Abstract ideas such as stability, permanence, creativity, availability, and openness are the basis of design for the building. Massive forms that anchor the building
were used to express permanence and stability in the community. All glass entry systems and raised ceilings throughout the space provide impressions of openness and availability to the donors.
