Montana State University Northern Wellness Center + Stadium
A Campus Revitalization
MSUN needed a feasibility study and design for a new west-side campus renovation. The renovation includes a new 70,000 SF Wellness Center containing classrooms, banquet area, student/staff gym, team locker rooms, trainer rooms, meeting rooms, administration/staff office area with conference rooms, concessions area with a full kitchen, bathrooms, elevator, and a ticket office. A new 5,000-person football stadium with booster/press box area maintains the historical feel of the campus. Updated parking and drive-access and landscaped walking paths integrate the new design within the existing campus. The new space creates more options for a healthy campus living environment while the new walking and jogging paths connecting the campus provides a safe and healthy way to enjoy the outdoors. 45 Architecture was responsible for the facility feasibility assessment, the master plan and the entire design of the 70,000 SF Wellness Center. 45 Architecture also had the opportunity to provide marketing materials and help promote the design for their initial fund-raising campaign.
