Project Summary:
The project achieves two extraordinary feats: It raises the bar for a municipal sanitation building to the status of an excellent civic structure in the heart of the city, and it also evidences extraordinary skill in changing an initial negative community response into a welcoming presence. The green roof participates as a building system by providing a habitat and food for migratory birds, capturing 100 percent of rainwater and improving views for neighboring buildings. Greywater is used as a source for flushing restroom fixtures and truck washing. Attention to its civic responsibility is shown in the cost-effective paint color palate, which creates a polychrome façade at night. The salt shed is an unexpected sculptural element, creating visual interest in an industrial context and demonstrating investment in an underserved neighborhood.
