ARCHITECTURAL AWARD OF EXCELLENCE -LEARNING BY DESIGN

In the Fall 2019 edition of Learning By Design, Pacific Cornerstone Architects was awarded the Outstanding Award for our work at San Diego State University's Maya and Chapultepec Residence Halls.


Chapultepec Hall, originally built in 1993, was in need of an upgrade, specifically the common areas throughout the tower. Because the residence hall houses approximately 850 students, the goal was to create larger, more functional spaces. The project focused on expanding the kitchens and common areas, creating new break and study areas, as well as upgrading the building's security features. Adding unique design elements and durable furniture gave the space a style of it's own.

Maya Hall was built in 1957 and can accommodate approximately 500 students. It is one of many legacy "red brick" buildings on campus and had only been slightly updated since first built. The main goal of this project was to create an updated and functional space without disrupting the original architecture and unique features of the building. Full interior renovations took place including the common areas, dorm rooms, and restrooms. The team reconfigured the building to compliment the adjoining Olmeca Hall to provide an organic flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
