Humboldt Fitness Center Geometric Facade

The Humboldt Fitness Center was first imagined as an amenity to boost the wellness plan for employees of B&W Trailer Hitches, a company that employs 400 people in the town of 1,800. We were challenged to design a facility that was challenging and new, but also fitting for this small Kansas town. While the project quickly evolved into an amenity for the entire community, we found ways to keep the B&W roots intact. In a close collaboration with B&W’s engineers, the design team mapped out a solution for the industrial fabricator to play a heavy hand in shaping this project. Our goal was to use multiple locations to highlight some of the manufacturing techniques B&W specializes in. Fixed diamond-shaped panels, fabricated by B&W, protrude from the east and west facades of the building, changing color as the day progresses and metal patina matures.
