The new Farm Credit West, Templeton is an 11,100 square foot addition to an existing 2 story office building in Templeton. Farm Credit West is the largest Agriculture Lending and Financing company in California. The new addition provides state of the art conference and office space and includes an outdoor kitchen with a BBQ and large covered gathering area for employees and guests. The building is specifically designed to harvest the natural light for interior use. Large windows with high ceilings and fully glazed doors allow natural light to pass into the corridors and support spaces. The building architecture is designed to complement the existing building while providing a visual distinction between the new and existing structure and connecting the buildings with an interior enclosed breezeway. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are designed for maximum energy efficiency and longevity.
