University of Oklahoma Health and Wellness Center
In 2007 the principals at Integrated Architecture, while working for Sparks A&E, were hired to conduct a study of the University of Oklahoma campus and surrounding community to determine the feasibility of building a new aquatics center on the campus to replace the old, outdated facilities. As a result of the study, the firm, in association with Counsilman-Hunsaker and Brinkley Sargent Wiginton, provided multiple design options to the University. These options were shared with the student body through a student referendum vote. The chosen option included an indoor leisure pool, spas and saunas, an outdoor leisure pool deck, an indoor stretch 25-meter pool with springboard diving, and spectator seating for 350 people. It also included new locker rooms all fully integrated into the existing recreation complex with a new entry and lobby area. The complex would also benefit Norman High School and the OU women's rowing program. The new rowing area would contain over 7,500 square feet of team lockers and showers, an ERG room, a training room, coaches offices, and a team meeting room with the ability to add an indoor rowing tank room in the future. The design and construction documents were completed but funding for the project never materialized.
