Blair Academy’s Athletic Center was an existing building but was tired and needed an energized renovation. We made a conscious effort to keep the past present, but a sustainable future feasible. In doing so, the weight room was clad with partial copper ceilings, which sends a warm light from the windows reflecting into the space. While the Canteen room still holds the suspended track above, and is used for studying, coffee, and small interactions. Blair Academy holds their past with pride yet continues to combine new construction with their old-world charm.
