"Taking advantage of the north and west floor-to-ceiling windows, work areas are held back to allow all to have access to views and to maximize comfort and daylighting opportunities. The office functions well during periods of intense sun and on overcast days.

"Reuse of existing office space that had been vacant for 10 years contributes to the sustainable characteristics of the design. Located near bus routes and within walking/biking distance of numerous employee homes, the office helps reduce the burning of fossil fuels and carbon contributions. As tenants and strong supporters of responsible life styles, BNIM convinced the existing building owners to provide showers for bikers and runners in a remodeled common restroom facility. – BNIM
