Los Angeles-based design firm JFAK has recently completed the sports hub Roberts Pavilion in Claremont McKenna College 

John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects (JFAK) from Los Angeles has recently unveiled a fitness centre, named the Roberts Pavilion, at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California.

Spanning 144,000 sq-ft., the centre provides light-filled engaging spaces for exercising, socialising, learning and community engagement. Built to serve more than 1,300 students, the centre boasts a bright and double-height entry lobby featuring a large wall pronouncing the College's traits.

According to John Friedman, principal-in-charge of the project, the holistic geometry of the building and the trend of students leading more active lifestyles has transformed the Pavilion into a social hub, while the intelligent, high-efficiency construction reflects its raison d'être. Daylighting and intelligent facades, renewable building materials, and bioswales are just some of the energy-efficient examples incorporated into the building.
