    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

ASID corporate HQ achieves LEED Platinum-level certification

ASID HQ DC 2016 (18)

The American Society of Interior Designers’ (ASID)  corporate headquarters, which opened in Washington, D.C., in May 2016, has achieved Platinum-level certification by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), under the LEED ID+C rating system. This is the highest recognition bestowed by the U.S. Green Building Council.

LEED awards points across several areas of sustainability to determine a project’s rating level: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The Society’s Platinum designation recognizes the commitment of ASID and design firm Perkins+Will to include the most advanced sustainable design practices in the creation of this innovative workspace.

ASID HQ DC 2016 (48)“We are immensely proud of the efforts of our project team that enabled ASID to achieve LEED Platinum,” said ASID CEO Randy Fiser. “This accomplishment represents more than just the Society’s commitment to the planet, but also our investment in our members, employees, and humancentric design. When we began this project, our objective was to create a living laboratory that proves the positive impact design can have on the health and well-being of employees while maintaining resource efficiency. I can say with confidence that ASID has succeeded in creating an office space that embodies the highest standards of sustainability for the environment and our employees.”

The headquarters houses 8,500 square feet of innovation supported by research that ties improvements in health and wellness with organizational metrics of engagement, retention and productivity. Key design elements, such as the space’s real-time dashboard of environmental attributes, weave innovation, technology, and nature-based design together to create a space that conveys the core principles of LEED. The office includes biophilic design strategies that utilize natural elements to reduce stress and increase air quality; stringent water quality standards; and a lighting system developed to expand efficiency by helping to regulate the body’s physiological processes, or circadian rhythms.

“The new ASID Headquarters is leading the way in creating a workplace that is both good for the environment and good for people,” said Ken Wilson, principal in Perkins+Will’s Washington, D.C. office. “Sustainability and health are intertwined and the design of this space focuses on attaining the highest levels of both. “

As ASID continues to advance the interior design profession, the new corporate headquarters demonstrates the impact of design on the human experience. In addition to LEED Platinum certification, ASID has applied for and anticipates receiving WELL certification, administered by the International WELL Building Institute.
