Skyline Aquatic Center
City of Mesa
The recreational pool consists of a beach entry with large water slide, play accessories and attached warm up pool for competition events. The competition diving pool is configured for both 50-meter racing lanes and 25-yard mixed course lanes. The pool functions are supported by two adjacent one story buildings housing a bathhouse, lifeguard facilities, classroom and office space. While these buildings were required to be highly efficient and functional, the building forms are playful, drawing their inspiration from a modified wave effect that mimics water in building profile and layering of materials. The final design harmonizes with the existing school campus rather than merely duplicating the existing school buildings. Voted ‘Best of the East Valley’ 2016 by the East Valley Tribune.
