Shepherdstown, West Virginia
Size: 73,913 SF
While designed as an addition to the Butcher Athletic Center, the Wellness Center is an independent, multi-functional facility with an identity of its own.
Three key elements provide a well-balanced recreation program: the fitness zone, a new pool, and a multi-functional gymnasium. Viewable as a rotunda balcony, the fitness zone is located on the second level with visual access to all amenities in the structure as well as the campus beyond.
Also viewable from the rotunda, the gymnasium accommodates a wide variety of recreation programs such as basketball, volleyball and badminton. The gym also provides open space for large functions like career days and dances.
The swimming pool offers recreation, competition and instructional aquatic programs. The center’s locker rooms include unique changing areas, offering a more private atmosphere than traditional locker room layouts.
