The striking new building at San Francisco State University is the new hub of the urban campus community for those who want to exercise as well as socialize. The 118,700-ft2 facility features fitness and weight areas, courts, three studios, a sauna, two pools, and a large multiuse space that can host team activities as well as student events.
Located on a prominent intersection off Lake Merced Boulevard, the Mashouf Wellness Center (MWC) serves as a signature facility and campus gateway. The shape of the building reflects the triangular site, and the three main modules (natatorium, gym, and courts) of the structure reach out in different directions.
