Gap Corporate Campus 901 Cherry

The Brower Center consists of 50,000 sf of office and educational space for environmental non-profit organizations connected to Oxford Plaza, a residential project including 94 apartments, arts space, a restaurant, and underground parking. Daylight and natural ventilation are prominent features of the complex, which also includes renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic cells and solar hot water. Loisos + Ubbelohde provided daylighting consulting on the project, including testing of physical models in a mirror box sky simulator, and analysis of shading options, glazing specifications, application of advanced glazing materials, illumination levels and distribution, and visual comfort and avoidance of glare. We also coordinated daylighting strategies with electric lighting, lighting controls and structural design. Loisos + Ubbelohde was part of an integrated team including the architect, developers and other consultants, which won a public invited competition to design this building.
