Tucker Sadler Architects was hired by the Boys & Girls Club of San Diego to provide full architectural services in the design of their Teen Center in the Linda Vista neighborhood of San Diego. In addition to a state-of-the-art music recording studio, the center will also offer local teens a large dance studio and multi-purpose room, a 20-station computer room, and a comfortable place to hang out and connect with other teens. As is customary at Tucker Sadler, the project underwent a sustainable design review, with some selected solutions:  90% of spaces are daylit using tubular skylights; energy modeling indicates building will use 20% less energy than Title 24 allowance; use of recycled content ceramic tile, carpet, toilet partitions, and casework treatments; low VOC-emitting finishes; “Trespa” countertops and recycled carpet.
