The Chickasaw Nation hired TriArch to design their flagship wellness center located in Ada, OK. The tribe has an innovative holistic wellness program called Unconquered Life, and they wanted a building that could host some of the new technology needed for this program. The wellness center is over 33,000sqft, and it has an indoor running track, a 2-story cardio area, a weight room, several studio rooms for dance and classes, a cafe, and administration area, and a children's play area. The wellness center has 2 rooms that utilize a state-of-the-art Pavigym system that introduces the gamification of workouts.
The architectural style is clean and modern, and the forms were designed to represent a central lobby with elements radiating outward like a pinwheel from that core. The form represents movement and the embracing of a centralized core--ultimately reflecting the process of a human body working to get fit.
