New Knoll San Francisco Showroom Achieves LEED Gold Certification

November 17, 2014

The new Knoll San Francisco Showroom, which opened earlier this year in the city's South of Market District, has achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The showroom, designed by the Knoll design team and Architecture Research Office, a fellow recipient of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award and recipient of a 2014 AIA Institute Award for the design of the Knoll New York Showroom, highlights the range of Knoll designs for open plan, private offices and Activity Spaces.

LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based, market­-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings. "Participation in the voluntary LEED process demonstrates leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship and social responsibility," notes the U.S. Green Buildings Council.
