The project joined two adjacent sports and recreation facilities and transformed their concrete façades with vibrant expanses of glass wrapping the front of both buildings. An additional 140,000 square feet was joined to the buildings' existing 225,000 square feet, which was partially renovated. Designers developed a creative solution to the site's urban constraints: a two-story upper level constructed across the top of the two buildings. This new level provides regulation practice courts for both Temple's men's and women's basketball teams, as well as locker rooms, sports medicine center, weight room, athletic offce suite, team room and Sports Hall of Fame. Also included on this foor is a four-court gymnasium for recreational use, a campus recreation offce suite and multipurpose rooms. A new three-story atrium lobby connects the two buildings and contains a large café and lounge, academic advising space and control desk. A two-story horizontal glass arcade links to the atrium and includes a 26-foot climbing wall with bouldering area, retail shops and 2,200-square-foot ftness mezzanine. The glass arcade runs along Broad Street, showcasing the energy and amenities within.
