Doing spacial analysis diagrams of Scott-Ainsworth gym side entrance enhanced my understanding of the space, and what type of entrance would be best suited for it.
There are many different options to consider when designing the entrance, accessibility, light, circulation, technology, use, etc. the list could go on. I think however, the two things that will be of most importance for this project is circulation and lighting. The building has very little foot traffic, and if it is located in a basement, natural light will be imperative.
These are mainly the things I will be focusing on in my design. I also intend on making the design entrance very different from that of the gym, as to me, visually connecting them would be suggesting that the spaces are connected in some way.
