North Idaho College Student Wellness & Recreation Center

Student involvement, as well as the involvement of faculty and staff, was  instrumental in ‘giving life and form” to the new North Idaho College Student Wellness and Recreation Center. The students felt it was important that the facility be designed to reflect the values of the College as well as the character of the surrounding campus. The use of masonry with accents of wood, stone, metal and glass provides a timeless character while acknowledging current and future campus vernacular.

The Center is organized around the main lobby, giving high visibility to each function. The reception desk is located just inside the entry; configured to provide optimum visibility and serve as a controlled access point into the building. The facility includes a climbing wall, fitness classrooms, weight and cardio areas, gymnasium, multi-purpose room, elevated track, locker rooms and an administration suite. The lobby and second level lounge are open and spacious, with areas for stretching and informal gathering.
