New Construction, Sustainable Design
MASON worked with a team of engineers to design a new comfort station that serves the needs of visitors yet conserves energy and water at the arid summit of the 10,000-foot crater. We converted the existing comfort station into the men's room and we created a new women's room/store room with lava rock walls and corrugated metal roofing to be compatible with the 1952 comfort station. The entire project was designed to have minimal effect on the nesting areas of endangered birds and the archaeological sites nearby.
