Project Details

Bray partnered with the Port Washington-Saukville School District to design a new, three-court gymnasium with retractable bleachers, a new fitness center, wrestling room, and support spaces.

The fitness center, located on the lower level below the cafeteria, offers plenty of vertical space for free weight racks and machines. A wall of windows allows natural light to fill the space and provides views of the natural landscape.

The wrestling room includes a martial arts-style subfloor below the wrestling mats to provide added resiliency for safety purposes. Support spaces like the mud room provide a dedicated area for cleaning and storing equipment.
