This 90,000 Sf addition to the existing campus gymnasium and pool will provide a 5,000 seat arena, a new competitive short course swimming pool, weight rooms and aerobics facilities, as well as new locker facilities.
The spectacular surroundings in the historic Hudson valley are complementing a design that uses semi-outdoor spaces and vistas to various natural landmarks as important components of the overall ensemble.
Much emphasis was given to daylighting; all new spaces are usable with natural light during daytime operations. The large expanses of brick required to complement the existing campus' material language were artfully interrupted with precast components, rhytmically breaking up otherwise boring large surfaces. Two different brick sizes create an interesting pattern in the masonry itself.
