Joseph Jensen Treatment Plant Ozonation Building

Granada Hills, CA

As part of an on-going process, MWA provided a master plan, conceptual and architectural design for improvements to an existing water treatment plant.

Our master plan analyzed the entire site, made aesthetic recommendations for new and existing buildings, and provided schematic designs for the ozone facilities. The design of the new ozonation building seeks to poetically express a thorough understanding of the rigorous requirements of industrial processes through the direct ordering of material, light, detail, texture and form. Ozonation disinfection is an improved, sustainable method of purifying drinking water. Recipient: AIASF 2007 Excellence in Architecture Citation Award.
