A city department that promotes a bright, sustainable future deserves a bright, sustainable space.
The San Francisco Department of the Environment (SF Environment) promotes sustainable programs and policies for the City and County of San Francisco. A move to new offices at 1455 Market Street provided the opportunity to put the Department’s mission into practice. RMW worked with project stakeholders to develop a program and design for the 24,000 sf space that supports the staff’s diverse work styles. A core of private offices and common areas is surrounded by open offices. This arrangement allows access to daylight while drawing staff into the center for interaction. The EcoCenter, a multipurpose reception area, serves as a demonstration of sustainable materials and energy efficient design. The lobby also features a gallery space for rotating artwork from the San Francisco Recology Artist-in-Residence Program. The project achieved LEED Platinum certification.
