Bear Valley Visitor Center Book Store

This project created a new environmental education store inside the Bear Valley Visitor Center, originally designed by Bull Volkman Stockwell.  The goal of this project was to blend the architecture of the new store seamlessly with the existing interpretive and Visitor Information Center.  Lighting is designed to direct lights at selected displays and to use general illumination and day light to draw visitors in toward the products.

Flexible kiosk display systems on casters can be easily rearranged to display different seasonal product offerings. The layout of the fixtures flows out into the exhibit hall to draw visitors into the store. The original award-winning building recalls the traditional building forms of the agricultural uses in the area.  The exterior of the building was altered to provide more windows to admit light into the bookstore and offices which brightened the interior of the entire visitor center.
