Southwestern College, DeVore Stadium, Field House and Central Plant
Chula Vista, California
Following a successful design competition entry, Gensler undertook this multifaceted renovation project to improve the spectator experience at Southwestern College’s stadium, expand its training and teaching facilities and reduce the campus’ carbon footprint. A new four-story field house encloses the campus-facing end zone of the existing 7,200-seat stadium, incorporating locker and training facilities, as well as multifunctional classrooms with dramatic field views. Monumental stairs, outdoor terraces and circulation, and human-scaled masonry and stone cladding connect the field house design to the campus contextually.
