Student Fitness and Recreation Center, Kaskaskia College

Centralia, IL

Designed as an addition to the existing gymnasium, this recreation facility provides new opportunities for staff and students. The cardio, circuit and free weights areas are located on the first floor and open to the track above, allowing users to interact with each other. The exterior is consistent with existing campus buildings, using the same brick, aluminum storefront, and curtain wall systems. The glazing allows views of the creek area and the track projects out from the building to give walkers/runners panoramic views. Other spaces in the center include racquetball courts, locker rooms, and sauna spaces. There are also offices for staff, a welcome desk, and storage spaces.
