The California State University of Channel Islands campus is uniquely nestled in the hills of Camarillo with numerous courtyards surrounded by low white plaster buildings with tiled roofs. The new North Hall Classroom Building and renovated Faculty Building anchor the south end of the North Quad, serving as a gateway linking the Quad to the campus.
The design included a masterplan of the North Quad to ensure the project anchored the overall vision of the quad. The campus contains large spans of lawn and one of the primary objectives established was to reduce the amount of water consuming lawn in favor of native and low water use shrubs, increasing the biodiversity, all while protecting the mature trees on site.
