Branson Commons Receives Architectural Honors

In late November, The American Institute of Architects, East Bay, awarded fourteen projects with jury honors for the 2017 AIA East Bay Design Awards. Branson’s Commons and Architect Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects received one of five Merit Awards. An excerpt of their commendation:

“Sited to take advantage of the sunny southern exposure, the new building features large overhead doors that open onto a generous plaza for dining, meeting and outdoor learning. By providing spaces for gathering and socializing throughout the day, The Commons serves as the heart of campus activity. The building is LEED Platinum certified and features many sustainable strategies, including a living roof, radiant heating, natural ventilation, photovoltaic panels, and pervious paving.”
