Project DescriptionThe Titan Student Union (TSU) is a mainstay of the CSU Fullerton campus. Located at the intersection of three major circulation corridors, most students—commuter or residential—pass by or through the building daily. At 38-years-old, TSU was in need of a renovation, systems upgrade and expansion to accommodate a quickly growing student body.
The new 25,000 SF addition creates a “front door” experience for students and visitors. The soaring triple-height atrium, which includes expansion below-grade, embodies a sense of “One Complete Space,” integrating the variety of program spaces housed at TSU. Organized into zones, each floor can be characterized as “Social,” “Active,” or “Collaborative,” with program elements to match. Transparency, openness and fluidity in the building design not only helps visitors quickly understand what TSU has to offer, but establishes and reinforces a connection with daylight, nature and the outdoors—just a few of the sustainable features of the project.
