Tyrol Hill Park

Location: Arlington, VA
Size: 850 Square Feet
Client: Arlington County, Department of Parks and Recreation
Type: Park and Recreational Space


MTFA has designed two structures attached at a central spine, one housing two new toilet rooms and the other a picnic shelter opening to views of the park. The facility is designed to maximize natural daylight into the restrooms to cut back on energy costs and is oriented to provide the possibility for future solar panel implementation.

The two buildings are approximately 850 square feet combined with sloped metal roofs, vandal resistant block, hard wood siding, and translucent poly-carbonate panels.
