The 52,000-square-foot Aquatic Center contains two natatoriums connected by a window wall framed in CMU, creating a transparent connection between the two spaces yet providing a separation between their functions.
Concrete masonry products were selected due to their durability and ease of maintenance in the corrosive atmosphere of aquatic centers, as well as their compatibility with water-repellent and anti-graffiti coatings.
Standard size CMU veneer and Norman brick veneer with a running bond pattern were selected for the building’s exterior. The color matches that of the existing attached building, supporting the context of the entire facility.
