ZNE Office: David and Lucile Packard Foundation
Case Study / December 19, 2015 / Zero Net Energy
When the Packard Foundation started thinking about building a new headquarters, they wanted to make sure the final product reflected the organization’s values. These include conserving the Earth’s natural resources over the long-term, providing a comfortable and healthy space that supports collaboration for its employees, and contributing to the vitality of downtown Palo Alto. The new two-story office building features two long, two-story wings connected by enclosed walkways and organized around a landscaped courtyard. The program included private offices, open work areas, communal gathering spaces and conferencerooms for approximately 120 employees.
