Perkins+Will designed a sports therapy and research centre for a new collaboration between the Dallas Cowboys and healthcare provider Baylor Scott & White. To sit within the Cowboy's new 91-acre campus, the mixed-use medical facility will provide necessary care and training facilities to athletes of all levels, including the Dallas Cowboys themselves.
Located in the Texan city of Frisco, the campus will host the new headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys, alongside sports fields, a multi-use event center and a new stadium, designed by Gensler. With an estimated 50,000 visitors annually, Perkins+Will's new medical center aims to provide the Cowboys' campus with a holistic approach to sports and wellbeing. The center incorporates indoor training fields, continuing the patchwork of playing greens across the site, and has pedestrian and cycle links to the larger network of publicly accessible trails.
The 300,000-square-foot, nine-story building is broken in two distinct volumes, visually sliced by a soaring plane that cantilevers out to the south. The design emphasizes connectivity to the masterplan, and largely glazed facades allow pedestrians visibility into the building, as well as views outward to the surroundings. It will host not only medical facilities such as surgery, emergency care, a pharmacy and medical offices, but also a Sports Performance Center where research, training and rehabilitation will take place.
The project is under construction and slated for completion in early 2018.
