Parallax Architecture Designs New Gym for Sierra Canyon Lower School

Parallax Architecture has been commissioned to design a new gym for Sierra Canyon’s Lower School campus. This gym will feature a fold-out stage for performing arts and a telescoping bleacher system across a competition basketball court. The proposed gym is sited next to an equestrian trail and the school’s recently expanded athletic fields, centering it in a scenic and vibrant section of Chatsworth.

In order to create a welcoming and student-friendly facade, the prefabricated metal structure will be painted in green, orange, and copper. The color scheme has been chosen to create an aesthetically arresting palette that subtly fosters a stimulating energy conducive to play.

A long horizontal stretch of clerestory windows on the north-facing side floods the gym with natural lighting, while brick pavers provide elegant pathways from the lower gymnasium to nearby campus outbuildings.
