For the McCallie School, Hastings+Chivetta was asked to design an addition to Davenport Gymnasium and Goree Nelson Swimming Pool. The major challenge was working with two existing buildings to coordinate an overall campus master plan.
Major components in the new addition include a performance gymnasium, a natatorium, a weight training area, a wrestling area, a racquetball court, and administrative support areas. Visitors may enter the complex through one of three major entrances.
The addition’s exterior matches the existing Davenport Gymnasium, with red brick, cast stone trim walls, columns, and decoration. Sloping colonial metal roofs and blue reflective glass windows complete the new addition.
