Metropolis Magazine Feature on SunPower


Working on a fast track schedule and tight budget VDTA recently completed a three-building, one-story campus for SunPower, a Silicon-Valley based manufacturer of high-efficiency solar cells, panels and systems. Skylights bringing in natural sunlight have been added, and a variety of lighted coves, soffits and architectural fixtures “paint” the space with light as a visual expression of the energy the PV cells collect. With the low rise nature of the campus, an array of PV cells is currently being installed on the roof and above an outdoor courtyard and select areas of parking.
