An existing eight-lane outdoor lap pool was also renovated. The building is organized by a two-story day-lit central spine, which links the facility’s active and passive functions. The high-performance building employs skylights, automatic lighting controls, and extra insulation; regenerative media filter in the pool saves water and energy in addition to using significantly fewer chemicals than traditional sand filters.
