ZGF master planned and designed the new headquarters for this charitable foundation. The 44-acre campus, located in the Santa Monica Mountains, has been designed to respect its natural setting and to adapt to the region’s environment. The development of this contemporary office campus provides the Foundation with a central headquarters to operate, maintain, and coordinate its long-term charitable projects. The full build-out of 90,300 SF of office space and support facilities will be implemented over four phases, along with site improvements. Phase 1 is a 22,240 SF, LEED Platinum®
office building featuring a reception area, meeting rooms, and a convenience kitchen with casual seating. To reflect the Foundation’s primary objectives of providing innovative solutions to maximize energy efficiency and environmental protection, the building has been designed to achieve net-zero energy, and to set a regional precedent for environmental stewardship. Sustainable design features include a green roof, solar energy panels, passive heating and ventilation systems, and a stormwater collection system.
