New Student Union

Fremont Union High School District
Cupertino, Calif.

  • Completion Date: January 2014
  • Square Footage: 32,976 (New Construction)
  • Final Project Cost: $16.5M

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.

The process of creating the Cupertino High School Student Union was as close to a perfect experience as I have had in my over 42 years as an educator. This building is Fremont Union High School District’s equivalent to the Statue of Liberty. It is what I wish all students could have when they come to school to learn.
