Chick Evans Field House, Northern Illinois University

DeKalb, IL

Northern Illinois University was interested in renovating its existing, outdated fieldhouse into a student recreation center. The program called for the creation of a new open courts arena to house intramural basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, and field hockey. The program also included the redevelopment of the perimeter spaces to house cardio weight training rooms, multi-purpose dance, aerobics and martial arts functions, new locker and toilet rooms, a new golf driving range, new classrooms, and office spaces.
