VAA - Ursuline 01.jpg

These are the facilities for the Sister Diana Stano Athletic Center for Ursuline College, located in Pepper Pike, Ohio. Designed By Van Auken Akins Architects of Cleveland, the facility houses a gymnasium, workout room, locker rooms, and support spaces for the Arrows' athletic teams. It was designed to replace an older facility that was destroyed by a tornado in 2013.

This was one of my last shoots of the fall, and I'm glad that I was able to squeeze it in. This is a beautiful little campus, and I think the building blends into it rather well. The forms, materials, and colors are sympathetic to the existing infrastructure as well as the surrounding countryside. Very nice presentation.
