A.R.E. Awards – Sustainability – Outstanding Merit

With numerous disciplines including researchers and scientists involved early on, this store‘s carbon footprint is 25 percent smaller than previous iterations, as certified by the Global Research Institute. A «design by subtraction” philosophy also yielded 30 percent lower energy consumption as well as fewer materials overall thanks to the lack of partition walls. All wood is renewable, all metals are recycled, and Plyboo and Wheatboard are both FSC-certified. LED lighting in a diagonal pattern significantly reduces the lighting quantity and power load. Modular construction methods further reduce waste. And an independent Cx is providing ongoing commissioning. For this project, less truly is more.
