The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) renovated its own headquarters in the District’s Chinatown neighborhood with the goal of rebranding the office to better reflect its nature-focused principles. This project earned LEED Platinum certification and earned WELL Gold certification in sustainable design. The design transforms the old space from being compact and dark to one filled with light by way of adding a three-story atrium with natural-light harvesting technology. Workplaces are equipped with cool blue lighting, illuminating spaces at 45-degree angles to match natural progression of the morning sun.
