Marin Country Day School
Nestled in a canyon formed by the ridges of Ring Mountain Nature Preserve, ecosystem restoration and academic ritual are the core of a K-8 school. For more than 15 years CMG has worked with Marin Country Day School to develop the 37-acre campus with special attention to the unique attributes of its environment and the school’s mission. Work began with a campus master plan and continued with its implementation. The story of water’s interaction with the valley encouraged CMG to explore several ideas in the subsequent design: rainwater harvesting, greywater reuse, stormwater infiltration, and native stream restoration.
Treasure Island Parks + Open Space
A contemporary landscape that is socially active, environmentally progressive, well-crafted, and rooted in its place as an island in the middle of the Bay. CMG has approached the large and complex redevelopment of Treasure Island as an opportunity to pioneer innovation in sustainable infrastructure and socially oriented landscapes.
