Plains ISD - Plains K-12 Gymnasium

Plains, TX

About the project

The new gymnasium is designed much like a collegiate facility in its scale, aesthetic, and function to meet the specific challenges set by Plains ISD. The gymnasium is complete with 800 stadium-style sunken seats, and accessibility between gymnasiums, locker rooms, coaches’ offices, and training facilities. LED lighting is used in combination with treated natural light to conserve energy and elevated walkways were designed into the overhead structural system to simplify maintenance operations over the court. The terrazzo flooring with a cowboy design was moved over to the new competition gym. The profoundly simple, straightforward, and incredibly beautiful design solutions for the facility allowed the district to bring a different scale and performance environment to K-12 indoor athletics.
