This LEED Platinum and net-zero electric building is a powerful statement of synthesis between architectural form and energy performance. The spec office was designed using affordable and practical building strategies to provide higher occupant comfort standards, while offering market-rate leasing options that make it competitive with traditional buildings.

The design is firmly rooted in a Modernist building tradition that follows a C-shaped layout. The two-story building rises over an underground 118-space parking garage. Sitting on a corner lot, the building is laid out on a central axis with a grand, south-facing square courtyard.

Emphasis on responsible harnessing of natural resources was a primary concern of the client. The 86,925-square-foot project includes a high-efficiency VAV HVAC system and LED lighting with automatic daylight harvesting, significantly lowering the building’s energy demand. Additional sustainable features include thermally broken glazing system, continuous stone wool insulation at the rain screen metal panel walls, and continuous spray-foam insulation on the backside of the GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) walls, along with ceiling insulation in the basement garage.

For solar responsiveness, each façade was fitted with aluminum-and-glass sunshades that were used in multiple compositions to respond to the specific solar orientation of each side, dramatically reducing cooling loads from direct solar gain. With resulting lower energy demands, the photovoltaics on the roof and carports are sufficient to fully power the building, achieving net-zero electric status.
