Architecture: Recreation/Wellness Facilities

With 60 years of experience, we are one of the leading firms in the nation in the design of recreation and wellness facilities for colleges and universities, communities, and hospitals. Our broad expertise ranges from medically based wellness facilities to campus recreation centers. Each design includes careful thought to programs that promote active lifestyles and wellness environments to educate, physically train, and otherwise inspire healthy behaviors to all ages and physical abilities.

High Engagement, High Impact

Our experienced team creates designs for active community hubs and energetic environments that engage traditional and non-traditional users of recreational facilities. By implementing well-engineered, durable, and low-maintenance solutions, our designers are able to add longevity to facilities.

A Focus on Wellness

We have worked closely with clients and facility users to optimize the fitness environment and create spaces that are warm, welcoming, and non-intimidating. Our experience in designing medically based facilities enables us to support clients seeking to incorporate life-long health and wellness elements such as instructional areas; therapy, assessment, and clinical spaces; relaxation and mental health areas; and demonstration spaces for cooking and other classes.

Our experience includes exercise suites, specialized training areas, aquatic centers, and field houses, along with amenities such as childcare areas and cafés.
