This campus was developed under the GSA Design Excellence program, which supports and honors all federal employees' dedication to public service. As this twenty-acre site was originally part of the Florida Everglades, the design team also had a secondary goal of restoring as much of these indigenous wetlands as possible.

The project's completion found 1,000 federal employees working comfortably and proudly in an environment in which 59% of the original wetlands had been restored.

Achieving these goals required working directly with this unique setting, both in its abundance and hazards, views, sun, heat, and water. The two 60-foot-wide buildings minimize solar exposure and heat gain, creating micro-climates that allow employees to engage with the outdoors.

Perforated sunscreens reduce glare without obstructing views while the landscaping strategically integrates and conceals security elements, along with a robust storm-water management system that builds in resiliency.

The site had been leveled with 18” of aggregate fill before purchase by the GSA, and sustainability and efficiency shaped the design, comprehensively addressing performance for occupants over time.

The result is a site-specific response that is both dynamic and memorable, where 93% of regularly occupied spaces benefit from maximized daylight and a visual & physical connection to the exterior.
