San Pablo Community Center

San Pablo Community Center

City of San Pablo

Noll & Tam Architects designed the new San Pablo Community Center for the City of San Pablo. The Center is located at the heart of the city, adjacent to Helms Middle School and the school’s fields and gymnasium. We worked with the City to facilitate a participatory community process that resulted in a final space program. The new building will provide multigenerational community gathering places both indoors and out. Our design includes flexible common spaces, including a tall, glass fronted lobby incorporating a small café, a computer lab, a youth room, and a large multipurpose community room that opens onto a courtyard. The project is targeted for LEED Silver certification. The landscape concept creates a promenade that integrates the Center with parking, basketball courts, a children’s play area, and community gardens, while ensuring adequate sightlines for surveillance.
