Auburn University Women’s Basketball Locker Room Renovations

Auburn, Ala.
Construction Cost: $3 million
Area / Square Feet: 4,554
Occupancy Date: November 2022

Design team members worked closely with the Auburn athletics department, coaches and players on this complete renovation of the Auburn women’s basketball team suite, which provides the team with an elevated space to bond, while maintaining consistency with branding and graphics standards throughout the space.

The locker room suite is separated into two distinct zones. One zone is open for players, coaches, staff and recruits to move freely throughout the space and is comprised of a player lounge, kitchenette, film room and hype room. The second zone includes the locker room, restrooms and vanity area that provides a private space for players. A small vestibule creates a barrier between the two zones and allows the overlap between players and coaches to be curtailed before and after practices and games when players are in need of additional privacy.

In order to take full advantage of the available square footage, the design team assessed existing conditions to maximize quality space. The vanity room was strategically placed past the locker room due to an existing cable tray that runs the span of the entire arena. The placement allows for a shorter ceiling height in a space where the height isn’t a detriment to its usage. Existing conditions also played a role in the overall space layout and finished ceiling design throughout the space. The spaces underneath the existing arena seating bowl contained large spans from floor to structural elements and significant existing infrastructure. In the end, the design team created and utilized innovative design tactics to make the space intentional for its usage.
