Stanford in Redwood City

Stanford in Redwood City
Redwood City, California

Set on a 51-acre portion of the former Mid-Point Technology Park in Redwood City, Stanford’s new satellite campus will house administrative offices, research and development, and medical clinic space, as well a fitness, dining, and childcare facilities. As Landscape Architect, O|CB worked with Stanford and ZGF Architects to develop a master amenities program for the campus, which establishes a campus center or “heart.”  Phase I is currently underway, with 580,000 SF of commercial space configured around a central greenway, and 2.4 acres of publicly accessible open space. As a whole, the SRWC landscape defines comfortable outdoor spaces and provides a ‘green infrastructure’ for the campus. The design has mitigated significant technical challenges: capturing and cleaning all rainwater that falls on the campus and developing a plant palette that will both accept reclaimed water and thrive in heavy, alkaline soils.
