8 GREEN GROUNDS Oracle is working to decrease its environmental footprint by reducing the amount of energy it uses to heat, cool, light, and maintain its corporate offices. Starting with the design and construction of Oracle’s headquarters campus in Redwood Shores, the company employed energy efficient solutions for lighting, air conditioning and water use. This approach continued with the design of Oracle’s massive data center in Austin, TX— which is powered by 25 percent renewable energy. Today, Oracle is committed to extending energy conservation to its facilities across the globe. In addition to lower-tech conservation measures such as turning off monitors overnight, reducing lighting in hallways and stairwells, and replacing incandescent lighting with compact-fluorescent lights, Oracle now includes high-tech energysaving features as part of the design process when constructing new buildings.

12 INTENT in DEFINITION The Oracle Campus has become an icon known throughout the world, representing one of the most successful software companies in history. The 8 to 16 story office buildings are compositions of rectangular are compositions of rectangular and cylindrical forms that respond to various site conditions around a lagoon that is an extension of San Francisco Bay. The materials are a combination of bluegreen glass curtain wall, to recall the imagery of water, and white pre-cast concrete, which dramatically defines the buildingâ€™s form.
14 EFFICIENCY in FORM The entire project provides over 1.5 million square feet of office space, multiple marking structures and other amenities including the 50,000 square foot Oracle Fitness Center. While the unique composition of forms creates a dynamic architectural statement, the buildings provide extremely efficient and flexible floor space. This project was completed prior to the formation of Korth Sunseri Hagey Architects.
