The original concept for the Eco Office sprouted from Southface’s annual Staff Retreat in the Fall of 2001. The Greenprints conferences in 2002 and 2003 challenged participants in Green Design charrettes to advance the concept and design resulting in the Lord, Aeck & Sargent structure built today. At that time, market demand for green buildings and the need for Southface services was growing exponentially. What started as an idea at a staff retreat became the inspiration for a new office space that could expand the success of residential green building programs to the commercial sector. This became an opportunity to demonstrate cost-effective, whole-building optimized sustainable design and to transform the market for high performance, green commercial buildings. Hence, the concept of the Eco Office was born; an 8,300 square foot, environmentally responsible building project to showcase some of the innovative green building technologies available in today’s market. The new office building will serve as both a main office to house about 20 of our full-time employees, as well as an educational and demonstration facility for the public.

The Eco Office is a three-story building which in essence feels like a four-story building, with a green roof area that expands the office space to a rooftop patio with a spectacular view of downtown Atlanta. The Eco Office project team has strived to integrate as many sustainable design elements as possible in order to provide our staff and visitors with real world applications of current green building design technologies and strategies.
