Rios Clementi Hale – California Endowment

October 28, 2010

On the exterior the primary method for this is color: two single-story structures, which house meeting rooms for grassroots advocacy and service groups, are painted ochre, for the beige and stone of Union Station, and terra-cotta, for the brick palette of Chinatown. A third building is white flecked with panels of blue glass; all three are crisscrossed by bands of variegated greens to connect to the California landscape. “Some people in the organization were a little afraid of having strong colors, but once we explained the story behind them and they realized that this was about being thoughtful, not about showing off, they came around,” principal Bob Hale says.
