The site of heavy machinery, California Air Resources Board aims to live more sympathetically with its surrounds.  Natural systems are fundamental in the design of the new headquarters aiming to optimize resource consumption, create cooling micro climates, and importantly, realize a highly tactile campus for staff and visitors to occupy.  

RELM tailored a vibrant tree and understory plant composition to achieve CARB’s resiliency and aesthetic goals.  Four primary palettes are utilized to compliment the architectural program.  The softscape design is envisioned to amplify visitor experience; minimize water demand, maintenance and fertilizer use; as well as provide security barriers.
