Modern Community / Cafeteria
In this section, our firm brainstormed the ideas on how to remodel the Mira Loma cafeteria.
Our director of landscape design is using the following materials and design inspirations:
• Alstroemeria, lilies, lisianthus, tulips, and poppies; these flowers mostly grow year round.
• Water source; the landscape designer that came to talk to us has inspired us, and that way we can reuse rain water to water the plants.
• Solar panels around the top sides of our roof building, to give power to the water filter and some of the lighting in the building.
• Elevator for ADA purposes.
• The soil from the plants will cool down the building.
Our director of interior design is using the following materials and inspirations:
• Surface for all tables; all surfaces are paperstone. The company that inspired us was CaraGreen.
• Lighting; energy efficient by Energy Star company.
• Toilets; for solid waste is 1.6 gallons and for non-solid waste is 0.76 gallons inspired by Toto Aqua company.
• Stainless steel for kitchen fridge, ovens, and stove by Traulsen company.
• Tiles for bathrooms are made from post consumer recycled waste, granite dust and glass cutting operations by Fire Clay Tile Company.
• Flooring; The floors are going to be granite by the Aldon company.
Our director of sustainable energy and resources is using the following materials and inspirations:
• Solar panels; saves energy.
• Water collectors; inspired by the guest speaker.
• Windows; reduce the amount of energy needed to light up the space.
• Glass; low-E - it has clear coating of metallic oxide.
• Garden on the roof and waterfall cools down the building.
