Administrative and Visitor Center – Amargosa Valley, NV

Yaeger Architecture was selected to provide architectural services as part of a design-build team.  Located just a few miles from Death Valley, California, the Ash Meadows Refuge is an oasis in the desert.  Underground springs support a unique assortment of wildlife and plant species.

 

$8 Million

 

The visitor center is designed to house not only administrative functions for the refuge, but also visitor interpretive exhibits.

 

Spaces within the building include a video room; a virtual aquarium; an art gallery; an indoor wildlife scavenger hunt; a children’s play area; and a welcome area/gift shop.

 

This project will be pursuing LEED Silver certification and Net Zero Energy performance.
