Palmer College – R. Richard Bittner Athletic and Recreation Center
The standout renovation and new construction of the R. Richard Bittner Athletic and Recreation Center solidifies the relationship between structure and function, similar to the foundation of chiropractic. The modern basketball court and mezzanine-level track allows for positive flow of space and energy. The new equipment means more exercise options to promote wellness on campus and natural light reduces utility costs while motivating fitness enthusiasts. There was much planning involved in preserving the original brick wall of an adjacent building and integrating it into the new design plan. The entry way is now accented with this historic feature that blends seamlessly with the modern aesthetic of the spacious lobby.
