Buck Institute

Novato, CA

Opened in 1999, the campus only featured one building. The Buck institute was created by the estate of Beryl Hamilton Buck who lived in Ross, California. Upon her passing in 1975, she left most of her estate to the San Francisco Foundation with instructions to spend the money for charitable purposes, prominently including “to extend help towards the problems of the aged” in Marin County. Since then the site has grown to three buildings with research and testing labs throughout. Each building is four stories with equipment roofs to support the technical functions and safety of the structures.
