The problem was to fit a 30,000 square foot office building across the street from the historic Santa Barbara County Courthouse into an existing parking lot. The solution was the creation of a single elegant structure that would meet the needs of the growing District Attorney staff while not competing with the beauty of the Courthouse. The scope included both the building shell, as well as the interior design for the attorney offices. The focus was making the building as sustainable as possible, and to create a positive light-filled working environment with optimal controllability of lighting and mechanical.
