The Miami Dolphins’ new training facility was the result of wanting to bring all of the team’s football and business operations to one place: the Hard Rock Stadium campus. The brand-new venue is 50,000 square feet larger than the pre-existing facility and is intended to accomplish two goals: create a purposeful, efficient space and maximize player performance. This new facility is indicative of the Miami Dolphins organization’s goals and is a key element in activating the stadium campus throughout the year.

ROSSETTI’s design strategy for this new state-of-the-art training complex strategically follows the flow and function of the staff and players to optimize efficiency. The exterior of the facility features clean lines and a cool color palette that are similar to that of Hard Rock Stadium, helping the facility to blend into the greater stadium campus at Miami Gardens. Its form simply expresses the efficiency of training on the inside, while a large glass main entry creates excitement at the approach of the building. The entry doors open into a tall, light-filled atrium which runs the full width of the training facility. Wood slats curve and wrap the interior wall and ceiling offering a contrast to the building’s exterior. The fluid, curved architecture also evokes movement and speed associated with the athletes themselves.

The Baptist Health Training Complex houses an innovation hub for new technology, spatial computing and a walkthrough space. For athlete recovery, it includes a hydrotherapy area, fuel bar, cryotherapy and isolation tanks, and an athletic training room with expansive rehabilitation space. The two-story weight room features a cardio deck that overlooks the indoor fieldhouse. Team meeting rooms have direct access to the fields, locker rooms, equipment space and the dining hall. In addition to team facilities, offices, conferences rooms, and the draft room are located on the second floor. All of the program is organized around the outdoor practice fields and provides views to Hard Rock Stadium, serving as a reminder to the players and staff of the team’s purpose.
