A lounge, presentation team room with theatre seating and locker room were the program guidelines that provided the Rutgers Men's and Women's Basketball Teams with inspiring spaces to prepare for games, as well as relax.
In both facilities, lighting and built-in millwork create elegant, yet functional environments. The men's space is divided architecturally with a series of cherry wood totems that provide a duel function of structure and storage with rotating audio/visual equipment.
The women's facility is separated with curved translucent illuminated panels that provide privacy for the team room while achieving a graceful open feeling within limited existing conditions. The introduction of fiber optics and a digital message board were other innovative elements that transcend this university locker room.
