The interior renovation upgrades the campus men’s and women’s basketball team locker rooms  to support player development, rest, and recovery. By repurposing underutilized space on the third and fourth floors of the existing Miller Student Athlete Enhancement Center, the designers created unique team spaces which have become a magnet for players.

Each of the two 6,125-square-foot clubhouses features 18 player lockers with built-in ventilation, wireless charging stations, RGB LED lighting, and programmable 43” digital screens above each locker. Adjacent to the locker rooms on each level are state-of-the-art sports medicine areas with recovery pods and hydrotherapy facilities.

The design emphasizes wellness through the introduction of natural daylight along the north and west walls. It also promotes camaraderie and team-building in three player lounge spaces featuring separate TV/multimedia areas with comfortable seating, and in nutrition spaces with communal tables for team meals. The location of the clubhouses affords players direct access to practice courts and the adjacent Shah Basketball Complex. The elevated, branded team spaces ultimately assist the athletic program with recruitment, retention, and relationship-building – all of which contribute to the teams’ success on the basketball court.
