From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: East Central High School Natatorium

Dec. 8, 2023
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Physical Education Facilities/Recreation Centers category.

The new natatorium at East Central High School in St. Leon, Indiana, features a unique “tech wave” form within the plan layout and on the exterior roof form and entry canopies. References to “wave frequency” appear through the exterior and interior design in layering and patterning of materials and finishes. The new pool is an eight-lane “stretch 25” competition-compliant pool, with diving, lap swim, and warm-up/cool-down areas. The roof of the natatorium is a tongue-and-groove laminated wood deck, which serves as a thermal break to eliminate points of condensation at the roof; it also helps to “warm” the space.
