About the project:
SDSU Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union - Orchid nominee for architecture

SDSU Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union – Orchid nominee for architecture

ID Studios provided full FF&E services for the new SDSU Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union. It provides SDSU students, faculty, staff and visitors with a state-of-the-art environment to study, socialize dine and relax. As part of the project, the university is pursuing a LEED Platinum certification, which will make it the first facility in the California State University system with this distinction. The new building, twice the size of the old facility, houses government affairs, business services, financial services, administration, recreation facilities, meeting spaces, study lounges, three new cafés, a convenience store, retail banking services, and a pub/grill. The project was designed utilizing the California “Mission-style Revival” vernacular of the SDSU campus.
