Reynolds Gym is a building transformed, and a strong recruiting magnet for students.

Interior Design Overview:

This project transforms the 60-year-old Reynolds Gymnasium, a longstanding workhorse of Wake Forest’s Reynolda Campus, and provides a new home for expanded and renovated facilities serving Student Recreation and Wellness, Student Health Services, and Women’s Volleyball. However, it's so much more than a gym. This transformation reflects Wake Forest’s leadership among universities focused on enhancing all aspects of personal wellbeing. The 180,000 square-foot hub for wellbeing triples the amount of fitness space available on campus and features a new lounge space ideal for conversation, relaxation or studying. Reynolds Gym now boasts wide-open spaces and abundant natural light, a welcome change from the original 1950s design.
