Building Types Group 1

Group 1 buildings are high-visibility facilities that use features, materials, and details representative of their prominent function and location on the Installation. Buildings include headquarters, visitor lodging, chapel, hospital, visitor center, entry control facilities, and others as indicated. Design expression should create an architectural character using refined detailing but avoiding excessive ornamentation. As the most architecturally significant buildings within the Installation, Group 1 buildings should use all the components of the proposed architectural vocabulary and represent the complete integration of the IFS Design Principles – sustainability and resiliency, a finely tuned responsiveness to its place, a form responsive to its function, integration of vertical and horizontal design of the building into the landscape, and a focus on human scale, well-being, and walkability.
