Conceived as an extension of the local ecosystem, this workplace for an environmental advocacy group was the first LEED-NC Platinum Certified Project in South Carolina.
A restoration and adaptive reuse of an early 20th century residence, the design solution recycles an existing building and restores biodiversity and rain water absorption to the urban site. Other restorative design features include extensive day lighting design, low VOC interior materials, and solar thermal and photovoltaic collection.
