A critical BRB design objective was to relate the new facility to the stone buildings of the core campus. The adjacent old Gymnasium, built in 1924, was designed by Raphael Hume in the English Collegiate Gothic style. The pool incorporates Roxbury granite (obtained from the same quarry that supplied the Old Gym); slate roofs with copper gutters and leaders, and limestone trim details that are faithful to the older structure.
