Eugene, Oregon - USA
The new home of the Oregon Ducks, the football team of the University of Oregon, is a unique and forward-looking project without equal.
The Football Performance Center has a global design which encompasses both the architecture and interior furnishings to perfectly tailor them to the players' needs.
The facade of glass, granite and metal simultaneously communicates lightness and strength. The elements of the interior that appear impenetrable and mysterious from the outside are bright and flooded with light inside.
The interior furnishings are also multifaceted. The love of detail reflects the care involved in planning. Yet the primary focus of the project was never lost: The well-being of the players. Every aspect of their day ranging from instruction, nutrition, medical care to leisure activities was duly considered, and everything was coordinated down to the last detail.
The furnishings are luxurious while remaining highly efficient and ergonomic.
The overarching motivation behind the design is to attract the best players to accompany the Oregon Ducks to the top of the college football national championships.
The aim was to create unique and innovative lockers that satisfied the special requirements of this project.
The modern aesthetic design pays homage to the sport characterized by speed and strength. Behind the sleek facade with the steel body and refined Corian front is an interior designed down to the smallest detail which offers the players every conceivable comfort.
The well-arranged storage of equipment was one of the most important considerations in development.
C+P developed a creative special, accommodating pull-out mechanism for the helmet and chest pads.
A sufficient amount of space is provided for storing personal items. There is also sufficient space for extra-large shoes. In addition, the locker offers technical extras like power plugs and cable-free cell phone charging.
The locker is fully ventilated to prevent unpleasant odors. The visual appearance is not impaired by visible ventilation elements.
In a continuous exchange with the client, a result was achieved that reflects the character of the building while offering its own accents.
Tailored logistics are required to handle a large football team.
In addition to the 125 player lockers, C+P also offers 20 lockers for the trainers as well as equipment lockers for the individual players.
These lockers for providing equipment to the players are open on one side. The equipment manager who fills the compartment is the only one who has access. Each player then picks up his equipment from his personal box on the way to training. The players access the compartment with an electronic combination lock.
The coaches' lockers are sleek and elegant. The sparse design is also reflected here. The body is made of steel, and the doors consist of Corian.
Like the players' lockers, they are powered and have wireless charging module, however the pull- out mechanism for the shoulder pads and helmet was replaced with a shelf.
