Boise State University is currently in the design phases of the first phase of a multiple phase development planned over the next three to five years. Full build out will be approximately 2,500 beds.
Phase One is slated to create 1,000 beds in ten buildings covering three city blocks. Phase One also includes a 20,000 sf Community Center to include student amenities, leasing offices and a model unit.
A five-level parking structure is also being designed to house approximately 750 cars.
The Multi- Scale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes Laboratory (CMMAP) project proposes construction of a two-story, 16,000 SF new building on the Atmospheric Sciences Complex (ATS) on CSU's Foothills Campus. The new space will consists of a Director's suite and offices for three research groups, two current and one future research group. There will be a computer room for the computers to run the atmospheric modeling research as well as a seminar room to hold approximately 100 people. The building is sited to create a plaza between two existing buildings and the new building to create a more pedestrian campus for collaboration. The building is planned to take advantage of the sloped hillside by burrowing into it with a lower level entry from the parking area on the west side and an upper entry at the plaza level on the east side with a two-story lobby space to connect the two entries.
The El Pomar Sports Center originally built in 1970 was challenged both in access and facilities, and currently serves Varsity Athletics, but with little or no accommodation for the general student population seeking wellness and fitness. OZ worked closely with the Athletic Department in modeling a concept that answers needed ADA upgrades, enhances varsity strength & conditioning facilities, centralizes strength training with physical therapy, introduces an exciting visitor experience via an athletic office addition with CC sports history and memorabilia displays, and a dynamic new student athletic and wellness addition. The addition adds an indoor space to aid Club sports, Intramural sports, student lounge areas, outdoor observation of varsity games, as well as creating a new opportunity for structured wellness sessions in yoga, spinning, weight training, and cardio conditioning.
OZ is currently working on the new Health and Wellness Center for The Colorado School of Mines, bringing together medical, dental and mental health counseling services. This center will serve all degree seeking students with 5,000 sf for medical services, 1,000 sf for dental and 2,300 sf for counseling. After a comprehensive Scheme Analysis along with Design Charrette meetings with key stakeholder and end user group input, we have found the optimal floor plan and design for the Schools needs. Our current design is taking a fresh approach towards to creating a sustainable wellness environment.
The Master Plan for Duke University includes two phases of on-campus student housing with parking garages that will be a part of a significant redevelopment of the Central Campus in North Carolina. The results include an "urban" village designed by OZ Architecture with multiple buildings housing a mix of four-bedroom, two-bedroom, and efficiency apartment-style units.
Phase 1 includes 500 bedrooms within 230,000 square feet and a multi-story parking garage for 425 cars. Phase 2 includes 700 bedrooms within 330,000 square feet and a multi-story parking garage for 600 cars. The project is to be LEED certified, and final selection of development team is still pending.
Currently in design, the CCD Student Learning and Success Building involves Student Service and complex remodeling to an existing 2-story masonry structure.
The 2-part project includes a LEED-Gold-certified 85,000 sf new building and 30,000 sf of remodeling to the College’s existing 1974-era South Classroom building. The scope of this remodel involves Mechanical Systems upgrades, reconfiguration for greater efficiency, improved way-finding, flexibility and function.
An extensive and detailed programming effort resulted from close collaboration with CCD Student Affairs and CCD Education Provosts including the complex Student Enrollment/Testing/Financial aid process, and welcoming places that support student interaction and a strong sense of “home.” Our collective guiding principal used to evaluate nearly every decision has been “Stewardship of the Student Funds.”
Area: 115,000 sf
Collaborating Partner: Boora Architects
OZ Architecture completed conceptual design for a 525,000 SF, 1,000 Bed Mixed-Use Student Housing development. The design incorporated retail, an auditorium, public and private parks, and student housing. OZ's design reflects the unique personality of the University of Houston campus taking into account the importance of a high quality of living and an atmosphere conducive to higher education.
