“You can’t imagine the amount of excitement and energy we have seen regarding the renovations. There is enormous happiness with the results of the project. Many people – faculty, students, and staff – all raved about the design.” — Kathy Tierney, Director of Athletics, Bryn Mawr College
BKP’s design for the renovated fitness and athletic center met the college’s goals of adding fresh air, natural light, and comprehensive ADA accessibility – even to exercise equipment and the pool – to an outdated facility. A new glass-enclosed, two-story entrance lobby wows visitors with views to the heart of campus and organizes circulation around a dramatic circular stair. Abundant daylight and improved ventilation, combined with extensive interior renovations, refreshed the existing gym. Improvements to the building core included new locker rooms and support facilities, flexible interior programming, and upgraded offices, training areas, and equipment rooms. The second-floor fitness center includes a “building within a building” multi-purpose room.
