Sustainable Desert Design at Sunnylands Center & Gardens

Matt Construction Blog | Oct 2018


"o2 Architecture and MATT Construction Create a Standout in Sustainable Desert Design at Sunnylands Center & Gardens. Since its opening in 2012, Sunnylands Center & Gardens in Rancho Mirage has seen a huge spike in annual visitors, from roughly 70,000 to 100,000. The staff count naturally grew alongside this surging guest count, outstripping the existing facility’s ability to house its workforce. When the time came for expansion, the management team at Sunnylands was very thoughtful about which design team to commission to build the new administrative and operations campus. They wanted increased capacity, but they also wanted a vision in tune with the ethos of The Annenberg Trust at Sunnylands, which runs the center, and the Annenberg legacy."
