Georgia State University’s Student Recreation Center has a striking appearance unique from other buildings on its urban campus, and its contemporary look connects it to the surrounding streetscape. A covered arcade along the outside offers views into the four-level facility.
Almost all recreational activities can be seen from the multilevel atrium because of the use of long-span steel trusses above the natatorium and gymnasiums. This level also includes the fitness center, exercise room, game room and computer room.
The level below the atrium has racquetball courts, a squash court, a 7,000 SF weight room space and a 35-foot climbing wall. The Aquatic Center has an eight-lane lap pool, a one-meter diving board, a zero-depth entry leisure pool, a spa and a dry sauna. This level also has locker rooms, a family changing room, and an outdoor patio with a grill.
The level above the atrium has the four-court gymnasium with spectator seating, a dance studio, a spinning room, a martial arts room and offices. The top level has a track, an auxiliary gym with rounded walls, floors lined for seven sports, a premium sound system, team benches and spectator seats.
