Replacement District Office
1 story | 13,000 SF | $3.5M | LEED-NC Gold (Registered)
The aging facilities of the existing district office, were not accessible, not energy efficient and poorly utilized due to inefficient use of space. The concept behind the new design was to bridge the gap of solving the programmatic needs of accessible spaces and symbolically tie this facility to the environment. The importance that nature has to the community and the district are showcased in a design that connects to Sedona through the use of natural materials and views, while providing for a lifelong sustainable building through solar generated electricity, green roof, water collection and geothermal mechanical systems to heat and cool the building. The building is now a teaching tool and a source of inspiration for the community. Project completed while at Orcutt | Winslow.
