The Challenge

Launched in 2015, Executive Academy aims to develop children into leaders with a unique student-corporate culture that flows both inside and outside the classroom. Sports, and especially its promotion of teamwork, is seen as integral to the educational experience. Executive Academy occupies two of five buildings left on the site of a former Western Electric plant. Built in 1947, the space has been adapted to meet the charter school’s needs; however, athletic facilities were lacking.

Our Approach

With no existing space to properly utilize for state-of-the-art athletic facilities, Alloy5 explored an addition to the building to create a long-lasting athletic center. Using athletics as an opportunity to highlight school pride, Alloy5 focused on integrating EEACS’s school colors and logo into the new addition.

Design Solution

Built adjacent to the main entrance, the new facility is a 16,000 SF, 1,600-seat gymnasium designed for multiple sports, including basketball and volleyball. The exterior uses metal cladding to mimic the linear style of the existing building while allowing natural light via east and west windows. Inside, Executive Academy’s Raptor logo is emblazoned on the bleachers, at half court and throughout the color scheme to unite the space.
