The existing East Wing of the WHAC dated to the early 2000's, and had large volume underutilized racquetball and basketball court spaces, while undersized student dining and lounge areas. The design team worked closely to recapture this underutilized space and insert an entire second level, which nearly doubled the available square footage.
The interiors are inspired by the Ohio State Athletics brand and a dynamic, raw, contemporary, and industrial inspired aesthetic interspersed with the textbook "Scarlet & Gray" of the Buckeyes. Existing finishes in other recently renovated areas of the WHAC were incorporated to seamlessly connect these upgrades into other areas of the facility.
