Built on a 12 point sacred system derived from Sufi and Muslim texts, this building has a living roof and is sustainable in every way. We used LEED principles for the building and we chose locally sourced materials in every way such as the mesquite floor radiating out from a center point to enhance the concept of Council.
The Ojai Foundation is a 36-acre educational nonprofit located in the Upper Ojai Valley. The building like the Foundation, enhances ways to deepen the relationship with self, each other, and the natural world. Council, the practice of listening and speaking from the heart, is the foundational offering and core of the architecture and interior design.
