Ames Healthy Life Center


This one-of-a-kind facility takes a holistic, intergenerational approach focused on ‘Living Well’ and ‘Aging Well’ through physical activity, health & nutrition, and social networking. The many partners that inhabit the building are all given a ‘presence’, with access to almost every space from the main entry lobby. A main circulation corridor runs North-South through the entire building, with floor openings to cardio and weights above on the second floor. Within the ‘Free zone’, there is access to a conference room, community room, teaching kitchen, physical therapy, arts/craft/music space, and a direct relationship to the natatorium.
