The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) headquarters office is the first space in the world to achieve Platinum Level Certification for both the WELL Building Standard and LEED.

The 8,500 sf office space, designed by Perkins+Will, features human-centric design elements including:

  • Biophilic design strategies, which introduce natural elements into a space to help reduce stress and increase air quality
  • Sound masking systems
  • Rigorous water quality standards
  • A circadian lighting system developed to expand worker productivity by helping to regulate the body's physiological processes

Healthy policies and procedures that emphasize employee health and productivity include providing fresh fruit and vegetables, sit/stand desks, and a wellness room to provide mental breaks. The office is serving as a living laboratory for the design community.
