Ideate Clients in Top Ten Green Projects for 2010

Recently the American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment (AIA-COTE) announced its Top Ten Green Projects for 2010 and we were pleased to see three Ideate clients on the list!
Homer Science & Student Life Center: Part of the Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton, California, the Center is designed to foster scientific inquiry and exhibit the correlation between the building’s functions and its site. The project makes use previously developed land and local and salvaged materials, and was design by Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects.

Twelve West: This mixed-use building in Portland, Oregon, was designed by ZGF Architects to emphasize energy reduction strategies. The design features wind-generated electricity, natural ventilation, and accommodates car-free living. (At Ideate Portland, we're particularly fond of this project - we can see the wind turbines from our office!)

Watsonville Water Resource Center: Watsonville, California’s new Water Resource Center was designed by WRNS Studio and boasts plenty of water conservation strategies. Among these are planted swales, landscaping with mulch and drought-tolerant vegetation, and collecting rainwater for irrigation.

Full profiles of these, and other projects, are available at and at
