Old San Francisco Mint to Become a Gorgeous Green Museum
One strategy being used by the designers is “letting the building do what it was designed to do.” For example, existing passive ventilation is not closed down — instead, the renovations are designed to work with the existing building. The new glass roof over the courtyard does not seal off the courtyard, but rather serves to supplement the passive ventilation systems without completely closing in the building. It also serves to provide additional rainwater catchment area.
