The vision for this 67-acre design/build juvenile justice project focuses on care and safe treatment in a safe and secure environment.
Key program elements promote a healthy lifestyle with:
- Outdoor exercise areas
- Play fields
- A running track
- A community garden
Competitively selected, LCI thoughtfully considered existing site conditions and developed an environmentally responsible approach to the landscape design for the facility.
Sustainable landscape components integrated:
- ‘Native to Santa Monica Mountain’ plant palette
- Reclaimed water
- Fire fuel modification
- Retaining stormwater runoff – underground cistern, bioswales
Multi-agency approvals included Regional Planning, Building and Safety, Land Development Division, Environmental Review Board, Los Angeles County Fire Department and Coastal Commission.
Campus Kilpatrick is pending LEED Gold certification.
