Explains IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl Durst, “The Windhover Contemplative Center is exquisitely designed and provides a serene and relaxing environment within Stanford University where students and visitors can relax and collect their thoughts, in an aesthetically pleasing setting. With the use of filtered lights and natural colored earth walls, Aidlin Darling Design has created a true sanctuary within a busy and bustling college campus, which is an incredibly difficult task.”
