South Kingstown Community Recreation Center - Rhode Island


S3 Design provided Athletic and Recreation Design expertise in collaboration with Brewster Thornton Group Architects. The facility provides much needed space for recreation programs, community athletics, athletics practice and interscholastic competition, and adult and senior activities.

Program Highlights include:
Multi-Purpose Gymnasium
Control Desk/Offices
Walking /Jogging Track
Spectator Rest Rooms
Team/Officials Locker Rooms
Group Exercise/Multi-purpose rooms


Initially, S3 Design completed a feasibility study that provided programming and concept design with corresponding construction cost. This was presented to the town and received bond approval.

S3 Design continued to collaborate with Brewster Thornton Group Architects on the design and documentation for the project. Our role included program confirmation, building layout, massing and interior design from SD through Construction Documents.

S3’s expertise helped to accommodate the multiple shared users and activities that were part of South Kingstown’s vision for the facility. S3 participated in a workshop process with a planning committee of various town representatives to balance the needs of varsity sports, town recreation use and senior/adult activities.


The facility was designed to accommodate a range of activities from High School varsity basketball and volleyball to recreation tennis, group exercise classes, and community events. The design provides for shared spaces that maximize both the athletic performance and user sequence to facilitate use and flow for various event scenarios.
