Designed by the Washington, DC architectural firm of Bowie Gridley Associates in conjunction with the athletic program-planning firm of Brailsford & Dunlavey, also from Washington DC, the center captures the historical integrity of the Baldwin campus while providing the school community with a beautiful facility that enables all students to participate fully in an outstanding athletics and physical education program. The brick, stone and glass exterior of the center are compatible aesthetically with other structures on campus, articulating elements of the Victorian style of the historic Residence building, formerly the Bryn Mawr Hotel, designed by Furness and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Concerned with the environmental impacts of a new building, the Baldwin Athletic Center incorporates several eco-friendly design and construction initiatives, including solar reflectance roofing, the use of regionally extracted materials, the installation of Energy Star equipment and appliances, and an indoor air quality management system.
