Moses Brown Squash Courts

The Moses Brown School, an independent, college preparatory, Quaker day school, and SquashBusters, a sports-based after school youth enrichment program, have partnered for the development of a collegiate-quality squash complex on the school's 33-acre Providence campus that will host Moses Brown's squash teams and SquashBusters players. The new 19,500 square foot center will be located at the campus entrance on Hope Street. It will have twelve squash courts, a central viewing and activity area, two classrooms/meeting rooms, two student lounge areas, large men and women's locker room, staff offices, a kitchenette, and a large storage space.

The massing anchors the building on site. The front terracotta-clad volume steps down towards Hope Street to blend in with the adjacent residential architecture, while the entrance is located on the campus side along a rain garden that is framed by the building and two existing large-scale trees.

The new squash center enhances school's athletic facilities while developing new connections with the surrounding community by being available to the public through community memberships, hosting summer camps and tournaments.
