High Technology Laboratory & Classroom Building

Palomar College: San Marcos, CA

The project replaces all science teaching spaces at Palomar College, including lab, classroom, lecture, meeting, and faculty office space. The design provides fro technology-based, collaborative and distance learning methods to be integrated into the science curriculum. The building form was developed from the site’s highly sloping topography and very limited area within a completely built out existing campus. State of the art lab support areas are adjacent to all labs.

This project won the highest award ever given by San Diego Gas & Electric Savings, recognizing design program for its demonstrated energy efficiency.
