Headlands Center of the Arts: The Commons



Fueled by recent program and audience growth, the Headlands is enhancing its campus and services to the public with The Commons, a new outdoor space designed to enhance the Headlands experience. The Commons expands services for artists and visitors with more than 3,000 square feet of new programming space; three newly commissioned permanent artworks; and additional places to gather, relax, and enjoy the area’s renowned natural beauty. The design includes a central plaza, a pedestrian walkway that connects the two main public buildings, and a redesign of the main entryway that is more welcoming and accessible. Envisioned in partnership with Bay Area-based CMG Landscape Architecture—whose past and current projects include SFMOMA’s rooftop sculpture garden, the Moscone Center expansion, and the redevelopment of Treasure Island as a public art destination—The Commons’ site-appropriate design honors Headlands’ sensitive natural setting and unique history as a former military base. The central plaza includes a concrete overlook and series of terraces that reference military bunkers and shape views toward the nearby Rodeo Lagoon watershed and Gerbode Valley. Eucalyptus and native plants such as lupines, Wyethia, California poppy, and assorted grasses—grown in the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy’s nursery—frame the smaller spaces within The Commons. Come celebrate this new space check out the beer garden by Fort Point, food trucks by Off the Grid (bringing cash is highly recommended), coffee by Andytown Coffee Roasters, a rest station by Aesop, refreshments by Bare Snacks and Hint Water. There will also be family friendly activities to take part in.
