The Idaho Outdoor Fieldhouse
The Idaho Outdoor Fieldhouse is a one-of-a-kind facility nestled in Boise’s Barber Valley. The 7-acre facility operates as a training facility, and service hub for Mission43 and the Challenged Athletes Foundation. The 46,000 sf campus includes a fieldhouse equipped with an indoor aquatic center, ninja warrior course, indoor rock climbing wall, outdoor track, gymnasium, typical administrative spaces, and offices, a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chamber, and on-site housing. Every amenity was designed beyond minimally required accessibility requirements to meet the specific needs of its members.
The design concept was inspired by the environment in which this project is located. Building forms are representative of the natural forms seen in the native Idaho landscape. With a strong connection to the outdoors, this project provides an experience for those who utilize this facility that is deeply rooted in nature. The material palette is simple but bold, echoing the strength of the athletes. The spaces that surround these buildings seamlessly blend the experience from exterior to interior, facilitating connections between fellow athletes and helping to strengthen and support their feeling of community.
