Hatfield-Dowlin Complex Oregon’s University
The new 145,000 SF Hatfield-Dowlin Complex—designed to appeal to the rising stars of high school football nationwide—plays an important role in the recruitment and retention of the Oregon’s University football program.
The Complex is comprised of two buildings—a “teaching box” and an “office bar”—with the building program divided into box-like elements, interlocking as a cohesive and interdependent composition. The public lobby and reception areas feature elements that celebrate the legacy of the football program and acknowledge the program’s donors and sponsors.
A new outdoor plaza, with a cascading fountain and benches, serves as a public hub. Tucked under the plaza is a parking garage and plunge pools. The program includes a weight room, indoor sprint track, dedicated football position meeting rooms, team video theatres, offence and defence strategy rooms, and a conference suite that accommodates the entire coaching staff. This suite serves as a central hub for fostering communication and collaboration among offensive and defensive coaches.
The core area is flanked by office and locker facilities for players, coaches, and support staff. Additional amenities include a players’ lounge, a nutrition bar, equipment room, a full-service dining facility, a recruiting centre to host prospective players, dedicated areas to accommodate professional scouts, a media interview room, an advanced video editing and distribution centre, and training and medical treatment facilities, as well as a new enhanced grass football field and two new synthetic turf practice fields.
