Restoration of an old fruit packing warehouse into an art, design and sustainability center using time tested principles as well as new science and product innovations, to create an amazing educational venue and creative work space.

Integrating the indoor and outdoor spaces using gardens, living walls, natural filtration systems, and demonstration gardens into the architectural structure of this century old warehouse tells the story of the vital role that Nature plays in the new design standards of the future.

Come join for us for a project profile of a work in progress…where restoration, preservation, and conservation merge to reunite nature and the built environment. Where the latest in product technology and building standards combine with the natural world to create a living example of smart design that moves us away from destructive urban development and land use to sensitive solutions for the coming century.
