Gravette Competition Gymnasium - Lions Den

The Lions den was completed in 2020 with Crossland Construction and seats 1,800 spectators. The design allows for the bleachers to retract and create two regulation cross courts for practice and basketball camps. The main program includes a Weight room, Locker rooms, Offices, Hospitality room, Training room, and Concessions. 82 parking spaces were added and band practice area at the new parking lot.

Project Statement

The design intent for the Lions Den was to be sensitive to the existing Architecture but also bring the High School campus as a whole into a new era. The project provides a new facade to what was considered the back side of the high school.
