LACROSSE FIELD HOUSE JACKSONVILLE UNIVERSITY
The project scope was to create a Fieldhouse dedicated to the enhancement of the Jacksonville University Lacrosse Program. The new building is located between the Campus’s Main D.B. Milne Field and adjacent secondary practice fields.
Therefore, the building was designed to provide practical access from multiple sides, although the main entrance faces Milne Field.
The programed spaces were to support both the men’s and woman’s athletic programs providing separate dressing rooms, bathrooms, equipment storage and office spaces for coaching staff. However, common areas such as a hospitality area, lounges, game room, movie room, study room and athletic recovery room where designed to be shared and promote student congregation. Exterior lounging and seating areas were also provided with the same intent.
The building architectural vocabulary had to reflect the universities progressive and modern outlook but still blend in with the campus architecture characterized by the extensive use of brick.
