Architecture Overview:

Organized on three floor levels, this building provides five general categories of spaces: Gymnasia / Specialized Activity, Administration Office Suite, Personal Training Suite, Outdoor Adventures Suite, and Support Zone. The form of the building is driven by the functional organization of the spaces within. Spaces with high activity were generally designated to the north of the building to provide a view from the exterior that yields as much movement and transparency as possible. The "main concourse" (corridor) that internally connects all of the spaces on each level is open from floor to floor to provide views across the facility from level to level. Clerestory windows and taller roof over this area will bring desired natural light into this internal space.
