    Architect: Siegel & Strain Architects
    Owner/Submitted By: Town of Portola Valley

    Award of Honor

    The design of this Town Center redeveloped 11 acres of a surplus public school site into a park, play fields, and three primary Town Center structures - a Library, Community Hall, and Town Hall offices.  The original structures on the site were astride the San Andreas fault, which forced their abandonment.  The new buildings are arranged around a Town Plaza that terminates a sweep of reintroduced native and pastoral landscape.
