Counsilman-Hunsaker in association with F&S Partners was retained by the University of Texas, San Antonio to design a new student recreation and aquatic center.
The decision was in support of the overall goals of the long-term campus master plan, which was to establish new ways for students, faculty and staff to participate in a variety of programs to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle.
In response to this need, Counsilman-Hunsaker designed an outdoor leisure pool and spa.
The outdoor leisure pool includes three separate elevations combining a lazy river with an interior deck seating area, open water area for water volleyball and basketball, bench seating with hydrotherapy jets, three fitness lap lanes.
A separate outdoor spa with two separate elevations for seating including a large rock grotto waterfall will also be a part of the outdoor pool area.
