Los Angeles architect Edward Ogosta’s redevelopment of a cavernous warehouse into a client welcome centre, employee training facility and office space earned a LEED-NC Platinum designation, thanks largely to 277 solar panels and an extra-tightly insulated envelope.

As the city’s first business to earn this highest level of green-building certification, the owner modelled corporate citizenship – even constructing an external carport to maximize the rooftop area available for solar energy generation. The 56-kilowatt photovoltaic system meets up to half of the 320-square-metre facility’s electricity needs; all told, the upgraded systems and insulation yielded a 50 per cent savings on energy costs.
