Geauga Park District
The SHD staff worked with GPD personnel to develop a vision for the buildings that matched the uniqueness of the park. With the coordination of experts, the critical telescope requirements were integrated into the building design.
The 3,200 sf project adhered to the strict Dark Sky guidelines which earned the park the prestigious designation of a ‘Certified Dark Sky Park’... only the third in the nation.
Multiple sustainable design concepts were integrated into the look of the buildings such as recycled materials, renewable energy wind and solar green roofs, rainwater collection and passive toilets.
