3Roots Fit & Rec Center

  • San Diego, California
  • Lennar / Shea Homes / California West

An approach to life and wellness that nurtures a balance of fitness, nutrition, and social programming.

As the social and cultural heart of the 3Roots master-planned community, the Fit & Rec Center offers a welcoming presence that celebrates health, wellness, and connectivity for all residents. The facility features indoor and outdoor community gathering areas, locker rooms, barbeque court and adjoining multipool facilities. The FIT Athletic partnership brings its approach to complete mind and body wellness to the residents with personal training, group fitness, and social events.

The building design utilizes a pre-engineered superstructure by Nucor, clad with an energy-efficient insulated metal panel which provides solar reflectivity and excellent thermal performance. The steel structure offers a more sustainable building with less framing drywall, making the steel part of the finish design.

Large, glass garage-style doors open the double-volume community room and flows to the covered outdoor gathering lounge. Walking into the community space, visitors are welcomed by light pouring through the windows and glistening onto the custom chandelier, filling the entire expanse of the room. Local artisan murals complement the green walls on the second story, emulating nature into the interior space. The emphasis on nature soothes the soul allowing the residents to sink in, curl up in one of the massive sectionals, have a snack at the kitchen, or use the fitness center to create personal balance and harmony.
