Every once in a while you have to look beyond the immediate noise of the city to find a gem in the rough. Well, the people have searched through our nominations and found that gem in the San Diego business parks between Montgomery Field and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. Behold ResMed, the new, state‐of‐the‐art, North American headquarters for the Sleep Apnea Company
- Project Address: 9001 Spectrum Center Blvd., San Diego, CA 92123
- Project Owner/ Developer: ResMed
- Project Architect/ Designer: KMA Architecture & Engineering/Davis Davis Architects
The campus of the ResMed corporation is a startling good example of artistic landscape design for a commercial building. Because the plantings were carefully designed to be drought tolerant, and the paving materials allow water to percolate, this design may already be applicable for a LEED certification. Unlike many commercial buildings, the landscaping looks very intentional and thoughtfully designed. The public spaces are welcoming, comfortable, and safe. The integration of large scale modern artwork is a pleasant surprise.
