The Charlestowne Landing Community Center is part of a 665 acre nature preserve committed to the environmental protection of indigenous plants and species, and part of a growing complex committed to educating the local community about environmental preservation. Numerous sustainable principles were integrated into the project including passive ventilation, solar shading, and daylighting. Natural materials indigenous to the region were extensively used throughout and constructed with methods to eliminate VOCs throughout the project contributing to a healthy indoor air quality. The CLT Community Center is not only committed to preserving the environment, but enhancing the human quality of life.
