St. Ursula Academy / Expansion
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
Size: 27,000 SF / New Construction
Gymnasium, Meeting Rooms, Support Spaces, Parking
The St. Ursula Gymnasium and Convocation Center was designed to add a new front door to their urban campus. As a major destination for the St. Ursula community and its major multi-purpose assembly space, the building can accommodate 1000 for games, all-school assembly, and can be easily transformed into a space of worship. The ultimate flexibility was a central theme for the planning committee.
The center has a full range of athletic facilities and associated support spaces. The lower level of the center has direct access to the adjacent soccer field. Handicap, visitor, and delivery parking is provided on site. The Convocation Center was designed to reflect the progressive nature of the St. Ursula community, be respectful of it’s urban and historic neighborhood context, and reflect the scale and massing of the existing St. Ursula buildings.
