Siegel & Strain Architects, in collaboration with Trachtenberg Architects and Placeworks, prepared a conceptual design for the adaptive reuse of a military warehouse at the former Concord Naval Weapons Station, as part of a long range plan for transforming the former military base into a regional park. The striking landscape includes scores of historic buildings, meticulously sculpted bunkers and neatly carved rail and road routes that are subtle accents against the vast grassland landscape. The Park and related facilities will enhance ecological resources, highlight the site’s rich history, and provide a wide range of educational and recreational uses.
The Visitor Center will interpret subjects including the history of Port Chicago during war and peace, and the area’s natural history. The facility will be jointly operated by East Bay Regional Park District and the National Park Service.
