Exceptional Results

The YMCA Mukwonago site sits high on what used to be a farm field and required blasting of up to 12’ of bed rock prior to the start of construction. The structure is a combination of exposed structural steel, metal deck, precast tilt up panels and precast planks. 

The design of the facility promotes community and interaction between the members throughout their visit to the Y. While traditional YMCA facilities incorporate many enclosed spaces linked with tenuous corridors, the Mukwonago YMCA removes all unnecessary walls, allowing members to see and interact with one another at many key locations. The member lounge, located adjacent to the main entry, acts as a hub for socialization before, during, and after a workout. Vertical openings between the first and second floor allow visual connections between levels, and an open wood staircase at the heart of the building becomes the physical and social connector for all guests. The warm and natural material palette on the exterior and interior uses classic yet bold colors and textures to provide visual stimulation in a timeless fashion.
