Santa Ana College Johnson Center

Santa Ana, California

The new Johnson Student Center is a two-story, 64,000-square-foot building housing financial aid offices, a campus bookstore, a health and wellness center, a café, and a lounge area complete with billiard and ping-pong tables for students to enjoy. MHP designed a structural steel system that elegantly addressed architectural features including multiple roof elevations, a suspended column-free exterior feature stair, grand atrium spaces, tall curtain walls, exterior cantilevered walkways, and tensioned fabric shade structures. MHP collaborated with the Architect to expose the structure, adding to the appeal of the building.

Construction Cost: $60M

Architect: HPI Architecture
