Miami University in Oxford, Ohio is the tenth oldest public university in the United States, and was once dubbed “the most beautiful campus that ever there was” by poet Robert Frost. A quaint, yet isolated school nestled comfortably in southwestern Ohio, the university’s Georgian Revival architecture immediately resonates with students and visitors as they set foot on the campus for the first time.
However, while many prospective students immediately fall in love with the beauty of Miami’s campus, Miami’s baseball coaches needed more of an edge to succeed in today’s competitive recruiting landscape. There was no space to host recruits, watch game film or even routinely gather to bond as a team. The small locker rooms were located in the basement of an antiquated building adjacent to the field. The team yearned for a space that was uniquely theirs and would serve as an effective recruiting tool to attract the best talent.
To address these needs, Miami University’s athletic department turned to SHP Leading Design. Their charge: design a leading-edge space that meshes perfectly with the campus’s distinctive architectural style. The result is the Hayden Baseball Support Facility, a state-of-the-art, 10,000 square foot building opening in 2015 that reflects the positive values and winning tradition that recruits are seeking.
