New York Red Bulls
Blurring the Boundary
The athletic complex for the New York Red Bulls, a Major League Soccer team, consists of five soccer fields, a training center, and a field house. The main training facility, which serves both the Red Bulls and their youth academy teams, consists of multiple locker rooms, a gym, a spa, physical therapy rooms, trainers’ rooms, and a players’ lounge.
The design, both for individual buildings and the overall master plan, creates an efficient and clear separation of functions while projecting a clean and strong image to the outside.
The many different spaces of the training facility drive the design of the main building. The offices, directly accessible from the main lobby, are oriented toward the parking lot.
