Garner Aquatic Center
Garner, Iowa

Challenge: Create a bath house to complement the new aquatic center and allow visual control of the locker room entrances.

SVPA Solution: SVPA put a contemporary spin on the bath house and concessions building by using common "shed" roof forms traditionally found throughout the Iowa landscape. Typical building materials are used for an economical approach, yet the design provides a unique architectural solution with varying textures and an open atmosphere. The program shifts the adjacency of the office, admissions, lifeguard office and locker rooms to allow the pool manager to monitor activity throughout the entire facility.

Completion Date: May 2007

Project Size: 3,289 s.f. bath house
                         8,829 s.f. pool area
