All-Sports Fitness Complex and Bernhardt Student Wellness Center - Christopher Columbus High School
All-Sports Fitness Complex and Bernhardt Student Wellness Center - Christopher Columbus High SchoolMiami, FL
The two-story Christopher Columbus All-Sports Fitness Complex and Bernhardt Student Wellness Center is part of a new master plan that will add 100,000 square feet of athletic facilities to this all-boys Catholic school.
The design incorporates generous glazing, high ceilings and a covered walkway that provides a tropical feel in keeping with the South Florida environment. A central lobby houses a grand staircase and elevator and allows for the use of the second floor without interfering with the two ground-floor training spaces. The second story of the building provides additional exercise spaces, nutrition education, coaches’ offices and locker rooms, a large varsity sports locker room and showers, equipment storage, and a spacious and flexible conference room overlooking the field.
The new sport fitness room has an optimum 10,000 square feet of space and has built-in flexibility for future growth and advances in equipment. The wellness center was designed with the general student population in mind, with a focus on cardiovascular training. Materials were chosen to ensure long-term use with little maintenance. The color scheme used provides a clean, masculine look appropriate for its use as requested by the client.
