New Student Union

Fremont Union High School District | Cupertino, CA
32,600 sf

This project combined three elements of the school into one facility: the Administration & Guidance Student Services building, the library and the food service and café area. The Student Union is a central gathering place used by the whole school population, similar to a junior college student union, as opposed to a dated and decentralized high school layout. Open to students all day, and used by the community during nights and summers, flexibility is a central programmatic theme. The building embraces the informal, collaborative and technology based learning that is the core of Silicon Valley culture, creates a collegiate atmosphere and is the social and academic hub for the school.

This building exceeds any expectations or dreams of what a public high school structure can be AND it is what I wish all students could have when they come to school to learn. Polly Bove, Superintendent, Fremont Union High School District
