Trinity Pawling School’s Smith Field House was selected for publication by American School & University in its 2018 Educational Interior Showcase which honors the Nation’s most outstanding learning environments.
The Smith Field House project, which was recognized as an Outstanding Design, developed an addition that joined multiple disconnected athletic facilities-including a gymnasium, wrestling pavilion, squash courts and ice rink-to create an essential athletic hub on campus.
At approximately 30,000sf, the Smith Field House is now the largest building on campus and it houses a gymnasium with two full basketball courts with upper level spectator seating, a half court with workout space, a distinctive main entry and lobby space and an Alumni and Athletic Hall of Fame Room with adjacent terrace space that will spotlight awards and school athletic memorabilia. The new field house features curved timber trusses and utilizes large clerestory windows that create a dramatic and light-filled space. The building not only serves as a state-of-the-art athletic facility but is also enjoyed daily as a student social center and gathering space.
