office & research facility cibola systems, inc.

Cibola Systems provides complex communications systems for clients. They planned to relocate their office/research/development facility to Orange. The existing site was ideal for the program, and the transformation of a blighted thrift store/staging facility began.

The outside patio has been outfitted with a garden for employees to use during breaks, and uses a reclaimed water system. The project encourages alternative commute options by offering preferred parking for carpoolers and encourages public transit & bicycles. It is located about a block from the Orange metrolink station.

The end result is a sustainable project, which benefits the inhabitants, and adjacent properties alike. No ostentation here. Another step towards the creation of a vibrant and active community within the depot district of old town Orange.

secoy architects was involved with the design phase of the project, and collaborated with studio sa during the construction phase.
