 San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center

2710 Manchester Avenue, Encinitas, CA

As the structural engineering subconsultant to Zagrodnik + Thomas Architects, we provided design services for the County of San Diego’s 5,600 s.f. LEED Platinum, award winning nature center.  The facility serves to educate the community about the surrounding wetlands and its animal and plant life.  The sustainable design incorporated integrated design, exposed structure, a green roof garden, solar panel arrays, recycled aggregate, recycled rebar, radiant heating, and natural ventilation and lighting. The design coalesced into a compact yet expansive, gracefully curved structure reflecting the forms and textures of the surrounding natural landscape.
