Acosta Athletic Facility

UCLA commissioned our team to provide planning and design services for the renovation and expansion of the Acosta Athletic Training Center, which houses UCLA’s football program, sports medicine, weight training, and women’s locker facilities. The facility occupies a prominent site adjacent to Bruin Walk, the campus’s major east-west pedestrian artery, and is flanked by the university’s tennis stadium and the iconic Pauley Pavilion, home of UCLA’s basketball dynasty of the 1960s and 1970s. The project increased the facility’s total floor area to 66,000 sf from 33,000 sf, housing the building’s preexisting program in more spacious and modern accommodations and creating additional shell space for eventual fit-out as men’s and women’s intercollegiate locker rooms. The expansion included demolishing and replacing the building’s one-story south wing with a two-level structure and expanding both levels of the north wing. Three phases of construction ensured that the building’s functions remained operational throughout the entire project. Carefully incorporating UCLA’s specifications for adjacencies, the facility’s design also adheres to the university’s architectural style and material palette, featuring familiar colors of brick and concrete masonry on its exterior with accents of metal paneling, plaster, and curtainwall.
