Tom Muehlenbeck Center

Plano, TX

VIEW ALL PROJECTS

Fluid architecture of native limestone and heavy timbers, a soaring ceiling with a suspended glass sculpture evoking the region's topography, and flowing indoor and outdoor leisure pools define Tom Muehlenbeck Center.

Designed by Brinkley Sargent Architects, Mesa Design Group, Moody Nolan, and Counsilman-Hunsaker, the natatorium complements the center's flowing architecture with sweeping views inspired from an adjacent wetland creek, one of the shaping forces of the project. A 25-yard eight lane indoor lap pool with on-deck seating provides competitive aquatics. An outdoor free-form leisure pool maximizes a strong visual connection between the inside and outside bodies of water.

Other amenities of the center include a double gymnasium, fitness center (separate spaces for kids and adults), elevated running track, drop-in preschool, group exercise room, multi-purpose room, arts and crafts studio, and game room. Aquatic components include:

  • 4,300 sq. ft. indoor 25-yard competition pool with eight lap lanes and on-deck seating with moveable bleachers
  • 6,300 sq. ft. indoor leisure pool with waterslide, vortex, current channel, water play feature, and ramped entry
  • 8,000 sq. ft. outdoor leisure pool with zero-ground runout waterslide, water spray fountains, children's play area and spray pad
