About This Project

AMDG Architects hired OLC as the recreation consultant to design, with Trinity, a new athletics and recreation center built around a new competition gymnasium for auxiliary use.  The building site is located at the gateway to the college campus thereby creating opportunity for more inviting entrance.  A new fitness center with views of the woods and a softly curving facade offer a warm welcome.


The new Athletics and Recreation Center expresses a similar language to the campus whole through continuity in exterior building materials and palette.  Overlooking the new gymnasium is perched a sleek hospitality suite adjacent to staff offices for recruiting, as well as conference, education, and special events.
