The first project implemented from Sasaki’s master plan for the campus, the recreation, wellness, and student life center at the Universidad of Lima is a new, six-story steel and concrete structure that provides space for student fitness, dining, and academic support.

Dedicated program spaces are balanced with flexible areas to create a welcoming and engaging student life facility. The center includes nutrition, counseling, physical therapy and weight training for athletes, as well as informal recreation space within the multi-purpose gym, which doubles an event space for up to 600 people. The entire building is meant to be multipurpose; as a major engine of activity on campus, it is a place where students and faculty can gather throughout the day and socialize, study, and recharge.

Two-story trusses span across the site, elevating the fitness center above a large student dining plaza. A central courtyard space provides natural daylighting and passive ventilation. On the fourth floor, a multipurpose athletic court allows for futsal, volleyball, and basketball gameplay, with views of the Lima skyline. Access to a expansive roof terrace and interior/exterior running track finish off the top of the project. Check out the project fly-through video below to see all of the spaces.

Construction Update

The center is beginning to take shape! Construction is underway and currently scheduled for completion in June 2021.
