Frontier Project

Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Green design can, quite literally, be a beautiful thing. Demonstrating that is the mission that propelled the Frontier Project’s building and garden into being. The deeply integrated structure and site employ a host of strategies and sustainable options. The result is a building that educates in subtle and overt ways; a catalyst for building greener buildings and structures in the region.

Native plants save water and energy, reduce maintenance, serve as pollinators, and provide habitat for birds and insects.

The gardens, which start up on the roof and descend down the building, provide wildlife habitat, reduce the heat island effect, capture and uses all of the rainwater and drainage that falls on the parcel.

A “Water(less) Garden” was designed to replace the typical suburban swimming pool.
