Through collaborative design process with the Academy’s leaders, researchers and gardeners, CMG developed a master plan to expand the east and west gardens. The master planning effort led to CMG’s continued involvement with the cultural institution to improve the museum’s front step and entryway. Project goals included increasing museum capacity for all visitors, creating a compelling identity for each garden, and developing gardens that are environmentally sustainable and easy to maintain.
The 1-acre public park is a vibrant community space serving families and residents from several surrounding neighborhoods. The project exemplifies how community members, public agencies, and forward- thinking developers can come together to provide much needed housing and public open space on underused brownfield sites. The simplicity and openness of the project are complemented by fluid forms, robust materials and attention to craft and detail to create an idiosyncratic and welcoming space.
Situated in a rapidly evolving and liminal landscape, Meta Headquarters is a new contemporary workplace highlighting the importance of nature, culture, and place – bringing all aspects together to form a place for business. Over the last decade, the campus has evolved into a complex mosaic of social spaces, ecology, and infrastructure.
CMG collaborated with the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands for a decade to transform the historic estate into a Camp David of the West. Many projects were undertaken, beginning with the adaptive reuse of employee housing as the Cottages Retreat, a campus for VIP convocation, and culminating with construction of the Administration Campus, a place for community interaction that manifests Sunnylands’ identity and legacy.
