Blinn College wished to provide their students with a new wellness center while enhancing their athletic program. Marmon Mok created a student recreation center which serves as a vital center of physical and social campus life, as well as providing for an athletic venue for the college’s basketball and volleyball programs. The building is sited to best take advantage of the rolling terrain and heritage trees providing pedestrian connections to the student housing, outdoor recreation fields and courts. The interiors provide high visibility of the building activities from the building entrance and feature a high vaulted ceiling above the basketball court. Our design incorporates the campus’ colors, blue and white, to create a bright, fun and inviting space that will foster institutional pride and identity while attracting new students to enroll.
