Wildcat Aquatics Center
BLUE SPRINGS, MISSOURI
- Blue Springs School District
- New Construction
Swim and dive teams at Blue Springs High School now have a state-of-the-art facility to call their home base.
The new building is right down the road from the high school and cohesively branded, exuding school pride with purple and gold accents. Spectators have a birds-eye view over the pool, as athletes line up on the starting blocks for competition meets or practices. The entire space is filled with daylighting and the standard overhead fluorescent lights are elevated through custom metal screens punched through with the wave emblem. A subtle wave pattern was strategically designed as part of the exterior brick wall, greeting visitors and establishing a sense of place. Pickleball and tennis courts are found right outside of the aquatics center, encouraging community use after-hours.
