  • This Ojai retreat is actually an alternative great room and patio for the main residence. Using the 800 square-foot maximum allowance, the structure allows for highly efficient cooling on Ojai’s famously hot summer days. Its location, with views of the riverbed and swimming pool, invites the residents to enjoy a private vacation each evening.

  • This ocean-front residence is built on a foundation of twenty 20-foot-deep caissons. The floor plan is open and simple, with an arched conversation room projecting toward the sea like the prow of a ship. Exterior acrylic plaster and vinyl sashes minimize the cladding and maintenance, while the combination of low-E tinted glass, a constant circulation fan system and radiant floor heating maintain a comfortable interior environment. Detailed execution of the stone fireplace and carved mantle highlight the owner’s individual choices that give this home a distinctive style.

  • This ocean-front home is a major remodel of an older wood-exterior house. The floor plan provides framed views of the islands to the west and the Ventura river mouth to the northeast. The dark interior has been replaced with light walls and glass block inserts, while keeping the redwood ceiling. The western exposure and multiple levels allow for cool and warm sitting areas to fit one’s taste. The exterior and interior surfaces are selected for easy cleaning and low maintenance in a setting of sand and salt air.

  • Ventura CA’s Firehouse building is one of several Patagonia projects developed by Hartigan/Foley. A turn-of-the-century fire station once stood at the corner of California and Santa Clara streets. The Firehouse, which Patagonia uses for offices and meetings, is a unique reincarnation of that building. In constructing this new model, we stayed as true to the original as possible, with necessary bows to function, cost, modern aesthetic sensibilities, and most importantly, environmental considerations.

    The structure that occupied the site where the Firehouse now stands was carefully dismantled, shipped and then reconstructed in its entirety on the Oglala-Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. Usually, demolished buildings end up as waste in a landfill. We recycled nearly all of the waste generated during the construction process; none of the building materials ended up in a landfill.

  • The original stables was built in the late 1920’s to house students’ horses. Cate School decided to move the Stables to a focal point at the north end of the track & field. Hartigan/Foley salvaged the original doors, windows, shutters, and hardware were salvaged. Hartigan/Foley directed the building cut into three parts, and moved by individual rolling carriages to be placed on a newly-built foundation. The restored structure now houses the Building & Grounds department, and provides signature identity to track & field events.

  • The wine store and boutique was the vision of owner Seana Weaver, who designed all the shapes, colors, and surfaces. The building itself is from the 1920’s, and the vintage ceiling and rafters add flavor to the rich new fixtures. The comfortable  environment is maintained by the old brick walls, the stained concrete floor and solar-powered roof-mounted exhaust fans.

  • This private school’s LEED pool facility consists of a 3,799 s.f. building and two pools; a recreation and competition pool. In lieu of receiving energy to power the building and heat the pools from the grid, a microturbine was installed. This microturbine allows the entire facility to be 80%+ energy efficient versus 30% efficient through CHP cogeneration. The microturbine saves the private school $46,000 + annually on heating for the pools, and provides 100% of the pool complex’s electrical needs along with 33% of the campus electrical needs. The building was constructed with 90% FSC lumber, formaldehyde-free insulation, zero-VOC paint, and LED lights throughout. The lockers and benches for the locker rooms were constructed from 50% recycled plastic. The landscaping was created using native, drought-tolerant plants. Ninety five percent of all construction waste was diverted from the Tajiguas landfill.

  • This private school’s Faculty Residences consist of five 2,400 s.f. +/- LEED Platinum homes. These buildings were constructed with 90% FSC lumber, bamboo flooring, 55% recycled content tile in the kitchen and bathrooms, 90% recycled content carpet, 25% recycled content-formaldehyde- free insulation, zero-VOC paint, and LED lights throughout. Radon mats were installed to reduce exposure to this naturally occurring toxic gas. Solar panels on each of the homes provide an excess amount of energy needed for that home. The landscaping was created using native, drought- tolerant plants. Eighty-eight percent of all construction waste was diverted from the Tajiguas landfill.

  • Bioswales are landscape elements designed to remove silt and pollution from surface waters. The Cate bioswales were designed to enhance the campus’ natural beauty, while slowing and cleaning runoff water during rain events. Sandstone boulders found on campus were used throughout construction, arranged to form streams through the campus. These streams are punctuated by pools, allowing percolation and evaporation.

    The bioswales consist of a drainage course with gently sloped sides (less than six percent) and filled with vegetation, compost and/or riprap. The water’s flow path, along with the wide and shallow ditch, is designed to maximize the time water spends in the swale, which aids the trapping of pollutants and silt. Biological factors also contribute to the breakdown of certain pollutants.

    A common application is around parking lots, where substantial automotive pollution is collected by the paving and then flushed by rain. The bioswale wraps around the parking lot and treats the runoff before releasing it to the watershed or storm sewer. Classes of pollutants that may be arrested with bioswales include silt, inorganic contaminants, organic chemicals, and pathogens.

  • A family-owned business operating for more than 20 years, Gills Onions is the largest onion processor in the United States. Each day the facility peels and cuts 1 million pounds of onions, generating hundreds of thousands of onion-peel waste daily.

    Until recently this waste was disposed by hauling and tilling into the soil at a cost of $400,000 per year. The Advanced Energy Recovery System (AERS) system processes the onion waste on site in an anaerobic digester to produce methane gas. The anaerobic digester produces more than 100 standard cubic feet per minute of biogas.

    The biogas is dewatered, purified, and compressed to be an acceptable fuel for fuel cells.  he fuel cells use a blend of 80% biogas and 20% natural gas to produce electricity by a non-burning ultra-clean emission process, operating at 1.5 times the efficiency of typical combustion-engine power generators. The generated power covers 38-40% of the onion plant’s electrical needs.

    AThe fuel cells produce 600kw of electricity, enough for over 150 homes. The leftover fiber peel material, called cake, is a rich cattle feed. This is an excellent award-winning example of a waste-to-energy project.

      Hartigan/Foley completed the design and installation of a large solar photovoltaic carport project at Patagonia’s Ventura, California headquarters. The system incorporates 360 Sharp solar panels rated at 185-watts for a combined output of 66.6 kW. The panels are on three custom-built carports erected in the parking lot. The eye-catching structure produces an amount of energy equivalent to the energy used in approximately 60 California homes during peak usage periods and also shades cars during the day. “Our new solar system proves energy independence can be aesthetically pleasing,” said Patagonia spokesperson Jill Dumain. “Patagonia believes in using business to inspire solutions to the environmental crisis, and our solar solution is just one example of our commitment to that belief.”
