Designed by Patel Architecture Inc, Henderson Community Building is located in California, United States. The design integrates almost seamlessly with the surrounding topography whilst presenting a modern face for the center which is also home to the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce. Working in harmony with the natural features and resources surrounding the site, materials that are sustainably grown or recycled rather than new materials from non-renewable resources were used.
The entire building shell, including the interior walls, is built from highly insulated panels covered with high strength concrete. Surfaces from floor to ceiling are kept in their raw form without the addition of paint or drywall thus limiting the use of harmful chemicals and unnecessary materials. Materials used had a high percentage of recycled content and all waste was carefully managed and sent to the recycling facilities.
