The Sheward Partnership designed their new 9,150 sf Philadelphia office space to showcase the highest level of sustainable architectural design. This project is pursuing LEED v4 ID+C: Commercial Interiors Platinum certification, WELL v2 Platinum certification, and Living Building Challenge Petal certification. The space includes private offices, meeting rooms, a large conference room, a wellness room, workstations, a kitchen, and a multi-purpose space. The project scope also includes a basement garage to accommodate two EV charging spaces and six, wall-mounted vertical bike racks. A private shower room was added to encourage employees to bike and walk to work.
Floor, wall, and ceiling materials were carefully considered for optimal acoustic performance. Tunable lighting was incorporated into a meeting room to demonstrate lighting options to clients and explore the impact of lighting on material selections. All wood is responsibly sourced and FSC-certified. In addition to two preserved moss walls, there are three living vegetated walls that provide each occupant with a view of plant life.
Other features intended to increase the comfort of returning office workers include:
