Form, Function + Filtered Sunlight Through Large Expanses of Glass

The Town of Truckee Public Works Administration Building and Corporation Yard is situated on a 16.4-acre parcel.  It shares part of its site with an Animal Care Facility that will be a public/private partnership between the Town of Truckee and the Humane Society of Truckee.  When fully built-out, there will be a total of 97,000 square feet of new buildings at this facility.  Immediately surrounding the perimeter of the site are light- to heavily-wooded areas.  Trees are currently present sporadically throughout the site with a moderate concentration of trees and landscaped area at the west end of the site.  The sun most dramatically filters and illuminates the work spaces through the south facing windows.
