Principles we use here: Pre-treatment steps, such as vegetated swales (ditches) or filter trenches, remove pollutants from surface water prior to discharge to watercourses or aquifers. Retention systems delay the discharge of surface water to watercourses by providing storage within ponds, retention basins and wetlands for example. Infiltration systems, such as infiltration trenches and soakaways mimic natural recharge, allowing water to soak into the ground.
Company leaders desired a new office/headquarters that would serve as a refuge from the industrial agribusiness landscape that surround them. The concept seeks to capture the essence of an utilitarian agricultural aesthetic. The design merges rural vernacular with an equally spare contemporary aesthetic. The landscape is a reinterpretation of an agricultural field and orchard.
