the Gymatorium at providence classical school
Providence Classical School successfully acquired a distinguished Art Deco school building in 2013, with a commitment to preserving its historical significance, optimizing the space for educational purposes, and upholding the architectural heritage within Downtown Huntsville.
A key objective was to enhance the property by incorporating a gym facility while replacing an existing auditorium that no longer met the specific requirements of Providence Classical School. Situated in the Historic District of Huntsville, the project faced challenges imposed by site constraints and stringent design guidelines. Consequently, a strategic decision was made to create a new, versatile space – a Gymatorium – seamlessly integrating both a gymnasium and an auditorium. The design of the Gymatorium was meticulously executed to meet the mandated high school gymnasium standards while ensuring ample seating for various school events and assemblies.
