Washburn University Student Recreation and Wellness Center

This new facility overlooks the football stadium and responds architecturally to the existing campus limestone vocabulary. The interior is a contemporary design of student-oriented facilities that encourage physical activity and wellness.

The organization of the facility enables controlled access, visibility/supervision of the two-story rock climbing wall, and views across campus from the cardio equipment. The elevated running track encircles the gymnasium, and support spaces are easily accessible for fitness classes and workshops.

Natural light is carefully controlled in the gymnasium, and durable, maintainable materials were selected for interior finishes. The facility expresses itself as a vibrant, active, and dynamic building during the daytime… and in the evenings when it is also a popular destination.
