Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre
Peterborough Parks and Recreation
Square Footage: 63,000
The Peterborough Sport and Wellness facility is the result of a partnership between the City of Peterborough and Sir Sandford Fleming College. Of the 63,000 square foot program, the city will operate an aquatic centre with two pool tanks, a fitness center and three multipurpose rooms, while Fleming College will operate two competitive gyms and a training gym complete with bleacher seating and team change rooms.
The building's design enables the community and the college to share program spaces while allowing separation during special events such as convocation. A main hall, generously lit by the southern exposure, links the main spaces and affords views into all the activities.
Conceived as a landmark for both the College and the Community, the facility features a broad and dramatic double-pitched roof that unites the main rooms below and creates an instantly recognizable gesture that can be seen from a distance.
