The Offices of the U.S. Green Building Council

  • Client USGBC,
  • Year 2009
  • Location Washington DC, United States,
  • Industry Non-Profit / Government,
  • With the thousands and thousands of green buildings being constructed each year, the US. Green Building Council has been busy manning the helms of the movement from their Washington D.C.-based headquarters. The office was completed in 2009 and was the first to be certified LEED under the commercial interiors certification program.

    “USGBC leadership wanted the space to be classically modern and timeless. This was accomplished with natural light and flexibility in accommodating ongoing change through a mix of workstations and private offices. Reducing energy consumption played a key role in the design of the space, and, of course, it was a must for the new office to achieve a LEED for Commercial Interiors Platinum rating under the LEED for Commercial Interiors version 3 system.”

    The space looks like it has a number of different furniture brands throughout – from Steelcase’s i2i chair and Turnstone Scoop stool to Herman Miller’s Eames chairs and the Saarinen Womb chair.
