Conceptualized with the simple idea of “movement," this facility puts OCC at the forefront of California Community Colleges.

Serving all students, the athletic community and future olympians alike, this facility supports OCC's desire to advance the health and human condition of our globally diverse society.

Inspired By Motion

Integrating the expression of movement throughout the design, the team crafted a facility with ambitious programming within the tight site and budget constraints.

The complex houses multiple pools including an adaptive pool for students with disabilities, training facilities, instructional spaces, and conference space.


  1. An “iconic face” to the campus athletics facilities
  2. An inclusive, diverse, and welcoming place to the entire community
  3. A state-of-the-art facility that advances an existing, strong program
The dynamic of the whole program changed alongside the pool; everyone is more engaged, wants to come practice, and wants to swim their best due to the beauty of the new facility.
