Why are the walls light colors?

The color palette at the YMCA is an intentional part of our client-focused design. While bright, vibrant colors are often used to boost energy and provides stimulation, our philosophy of inclusive design requires a comfortable, calming environment. The choice of natural light and soothing colors meets the needs of stimulus–and light–sensitive persons, while promoting a spa-like atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
