Ave Maria University School of Law in Naples, Fla., believes in a total formation of mind, body and spirit, and this project is part of that mission. The law school needed a fitness center, gymnasium, and 3-v-3 soccer field. The Cancro Family Wellness Center mixes indoor and outdoor environments under a metal roof. The enclosed fitness center at the north end features large windows and doors shaded on all sides. White aluminum sunshades cast deep shadows below, providing cross-ventilation in the open-air gymnasium. The south wall shields the basketball courts from the sun and weather and creates an apse for the covered assembly space.
