Project Detail

American International School of Johannesburg | Treehouse Gym

New Athletic Facility | Johannesburg, South Africa

For Phase 3 of the AISJ Master Plan, Flansburgh Architects designed the new 20,000-sf Treehouse Gymnasium. The building includes a 12,000-sf double gymnasium with locker rooms, a 900-sf weight room, and a 700-sf fitness room. The sweeping, folded roof sits above glass walls allowing ample natural light into each space while the outdoor circulation provides air flow around the main rooms.

Similar to previous Flansburgh projects at AISJ, a common architectural language of white brick, grey roofs, and local stone that unify the distinctive look of the campus are used for the Treehouse Gymnasium. Covered walkways and academic courtyards create a village feel with each division of the school having its own identity while integrated into the broader school community.
