The five-story, 67,000-square-foot building houses administrative and faculty offices, support space and the campus Welcome Center for the California State University East Bay campus. The original 13-story Warren Hall was demolished after it was determined to be seismically vulnerable. Its replacement looks to the campus context and the original Warren Hall for inspiration. Contemporary and traditional materials are blended to establish a cohesive architectural language. 34,182SF of insulated CCAPP panels run horizontally along the facade, providing a nod to the original Warren Hall. The pre-insulated panels contributed to the environmentally friendly features that helped earn the project LEED Gold certification.
