Tangipahoa Consolidated Gravity and Drainage District No. 1 Offices
The new office building for the Tangipahoa Consolidated Gravity and Drainage District No. 1 was inspired by the form and space created by large steel corrugated drain pipe. The building uses a quonset type roof structure typically used for barns and machine shop applications. On the exterior, a cement board rain screen cladding material is used with exposed fasteners. Internal spaces include a large high volume board room meeting space on one end with reception, a break room and offices in the remainder. The building is oriented with broad north and south exposure to minimize solar heat gain.
