Regreen Project

What a cool project to be involved in! At the beginning of the semester we plunged into a four week project of Regreening a space in the historical downtown district of our city. It was a great experience! Regreening is not the LEED process or anywhere near the intensive process as LEED is, however, it's still a great way to design. We design and specify in an environmentally friendly way. Recycled glass countertops, low- VOC finishes, Eco-friendly construction materials, etc. We also incorporated as many materials and existing items as we could! Example, the owner saved many of the original tin decorative tiles from the ceilings. We specified to refinish and use the tin for the backsplashes.

All in all, It was very intense for 4 weeks and a definite learning experience designing around the historical preservation committee regulations and certain structural and egress laws. Without going too much into detail, here is a small part of our end result.
