A simple yet elegant building, the Field House is one of several facilities SOM has designed for a prestigious preparatory school in New England. With its slender barn-like form, the building provides 31,000 square feet of flexible indoor practice space for the Brunswick School's competitive athletic program. In addition to a gymnasium, the well-equipped complex contains a training room, director’s office, and separate locker rooms for students and coaches.

The versatile main hall features four basketball courts, which can alternatively transition into tennis courts or a wrestling center. High ceiling clearances allow for indoor lacrosse and football practice, while a central skylight provides natural light throughout the day. Subtly integrated into its context, the Field House’s facade creates an understated backdrop for Brunswick's new football field.
