Living Building Petal Certified Miller Hull Studio
by Tina Angeles

When renovating their second studio location in San Diego, architecture firm Miller Hull set an ambitious goal to go beyond the achievements of their Living Building Petal Certified headquarters in Seattle and also achieve net positive energy.  Serendipitously finding space in a building in Point Loma the firm had designed over ten years ago, Miller Hull jumped at the chance to reuse while creating a better space for employees.

The presentation will discuss the project’s Petals as well as the primary drivers of the design which are occupant health and comfort considerations. As part of the Materials Petal, the design team put extensive effort toward eliminating harmful chemicals from the Living Building Challenge Red List, using regional materials and wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

This event is open to guests. Please RSVP here to get the Zoom link.
