Wichita West High School Addition and Renovation
The addition to Wichita West High School’s athletics facilities was a catalyst for improvement in the performance and morale of the school’s programs. The project included a new concourse for students, athletes and fans; a new primary gymnasium; and a competition natatorium.
The hallmark of the design is abundant natural light, especially in the gym and pool areas. Skylights above the concourse provide diffused daylight throughout the interior space. Each area is visually connected to lend a sense of open, public space. The exterior skin of the addition features a mosaic of patina finished metal panels whose subtle shades of maroon reflect the school’s spirit.
