Greenbrier High School Sports Facility

Posted: July 21, 2021 | Projects

This 59,846-square-foot multipurpose sports facility is an addition to the High School campus of the Greenbrier School District in Arkansas. It was designed to provide an indoor training space for high school sports such as football, soccer, baseball, softball, and cheerleading. The design team used the inspiration of the school district's panther mascot using its claws to rip back the corner of the building’s metal panel façade revealing the weight training room and practice field beyond.  The "clawed reveals" continue around the perimeter of the building in the form of translucent wall panels, both providing daylighting during regular use and making the building a beacon at dusk.
