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.
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.
