Located at the south of the island, is the Grenada Sports Centre, a sustainable, low energy building designed to provide as many facilities as possible to the Grenadian community. The building is designed to maximise the use of the 17,000 sq.ft. large plot of land available, while adhering to all local building codes and regulations.
A small cafe is located directly at the entrance of the Sports Centre in an effort to attract patrons and to increase foot traffic. From the cafe and entrance foyer, one can either access the 4-lane, 25 metre swimming pool or the changing rooms and shower areas, all located on the ground floor. In additon, the ground floor also houses a laundromat, medic room and computer biometrics room along with storage spaces and mechanical rooms.
The first floor consists of spaces to be used for dance, martial arts, music and squash while the second floor consists of a large gym and physiotherapy clinic.
The facade is highlighted by artistic sun shading elements along the southern and western facades. They form a second skin over large window openings and prevent overheating of the interior spaces while additionally providing privacy.
