SEGO Center City Hub Update

Charles has already contributed hugely to the evolution of the SEGO Center by suggesting and helping design with Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of KH Designs) the move of the Living Dome bathrooms into the center of that dome as well as designs for the 4th floor bathrooms. Here is today’s CAD Export showing the most recent changes:

  • Addition of 4th floor bathrooms
  • New Living Dome central bathrooms
  • Removal of walls in the 2nd floor Living Dome area
  • Addition of a mezzanine access walkway in the Dining Dome
  • Additional expansion of the central natural pool and hot tub area

You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called."
