The new aquatic center [designed by Novus] replaces the over 50-year-old Zeugner Center pool, giving the local swimming scene a much-needed makeover. "It's incredible, the change," Roberson senior Emily Orr said. "We've only seen aquatic centers like this during regional meets, and this totally lives up to that. It's so nice to be able to step into that kind of competitive pool and be able to prepare for those big meets in this environment." The new pool holds 400,000 gallons and has 10 lanes. The Zeugner had six smaller lanes. The new pool also holds over 400 spectators and has 64 athlete seats.
Novus Architects was founded 25 years ago by Tommy Smith in his living room working for one client. It didn’t take long to grow as the demand also grew for his creative process and commitment to exceptional customer service. Today, with offices in Atlanta, Asheville, Charleston and Charlotte, Novus has a mission to create highly functional, beautiful spaces that are more than brick and mortar, or fixtures and furniture – spaces that foster human interaction, discovery and deep connection.
