Green--and Enviable

CLIENT: Chesapeake Bay Foundation

ARCHITECT: SmithGroup, Washington, D.C.

BUILDING TYPE: Offices for nonprofit environmental organization

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, an environmental advocacy group, knew it would be held to a high standard by employees, donors--and antagonists--when it elected to build its headquarters on 31 prime bay-front acres. So it plowed nearly one-fourth of the $7.2 million budget into making the 32,000-square-foot wood and metal-siding structure a "green" showcase. The building uses only 10% of the potable water and 30% of the energy of a conventional office of that size, and 85% of the site was left undisturbed. While not every builder will shell out that much green to be green, "The Foundation is eating their own cooking," says juror Mark Walsh.
