The newly completed Hillcrest High School Athletics Facilities serves as the north anchor to the new high school building. School athletics facilities include the main gym, auxiliary gym, and stand-alone field house. The athletics lobby is a voluminous impactful gathering space for students, visiting teams, and spectators with a portal-framed view of the region’s Wasatch Mountains. Operationally, the lobby functions as a hub that connects athletic areas and leads to the upper concourse of the stadium. A dynamic balcony corridor suspended within the two-story volume connects two of the three athletic levels and provides visibility and monitoring between levels. The gymnasiums are amply illuminated with daylight. The many interior windows encourage personal responsibility and invite inclusion by providing opportunities for students to view activities.
