Orange County Sanitation District Headquarters

Fountain Valley, CA

In dire need of a unified office space and laboratory, the Orange County Sanitation District acquired an adjacent lot to house their new headquarters. Transformed to accommodate both public and private events, the outdoor space offers employees a place to disconnect from the office environment and connect with nature. A designated employee courtyard features a biophilic approach to function in a variety of events from daily lunch breaks to hosting employee celebrations. Reflecting OCSD’s goal to “educate the public and instill confidence in the system,” the plazas offer educational information while seamlessly integrating with the architecture.
