Sonoma Academy Guild + Commons

Citation Award


Sonoma Academy Guild + Commons project fosters environmental-, social-, and community-conscious learning. Embedded with maker, cooking, and garden educational classrooms, the facility embraces biophilia. It was designed site-specific, resulting in a high-performance, market-transformative, healthy, resilient, low-carbon, sustainable design that reflects the region's resources, health and wellness, and nature.

This is a project for which the story is enriched by the holistic embrace of goals from a range of certification systems. Impressive environmentally sustainable features are integrated wonderfully. The building takes terraces from the sloped site to create an architecture of stacked layers that affords varied collective uses on different levels.
