Contra Costa County Public Works Building Expansion

Martinez, CA | Civic/Community

Contra Costa County’s new Public Works addition provides a simple and elegant building that responds to an unusual site. Its design offers an innovative and cost-effective modern look for the department in a most efficient and flexible space, doing the most with least. The interiors are designed to connect the occupants with the outdoor landscape as much as possible  – both the wetlands to the east and the courtyard to the west. The project also incorporates a new daycare center that provides County employees a safe and cheerful place for their children to learn and play nearby.

Client: Contra Costa County
Location: Martinez, CA
