The Rancho Solano Student Athletic Center is the second phase of development for the new Rancho Solano Preparatory School via de Ventura Campus. The facility houses athletics, dance, recreation, health and physical education, as well as concessions, athletic training and administration. The gymnasium seating can expand to accommodate up to 850 spectators and the athletic fields provide safe access for students and visitors from the surrounding campus. The construction and material palette draws from the desert’s stone striations. The tall masonry walls are organized to create a vibrant composition and serve as a gateway element of the educational campus.
