The LEED Platinum Middlebury Squash Facility offers nine new squash courts with spectator seating, a fitness center, and a grand lobby. A dramatic skylight is the sole source of illumination for the spectator seating area; at night, the etched glass is illuminated by dimmed LED fixtures, seamlessly replacing the daylight after dark. The blade elements of the lobby ceiling function as light fixtures, indirectly lighting the entire space. At night this glowing ceiling turns the dramatic exterior of the building into an inviting portal.
