Gallery: An Inside Look at Autodesk AEC’s Playful Daylit LEED Platinum ...

An atrium at the entrance hints at the unique office spaces with two small yellow glassed meeting rooms hovering above. The upper story workstations wrap around the open floor plan with glass enclosed meeting rooms at the core.

The original 65,000 square foot building shell was bumped up to a LEED Gold Core and Shell before Autodesk renovated the interior to achieve a LEED Platinum certification for Commercial Interior. Using their Revit software, they made a detailed 3-D model of the space using laser measurements as described by Phil Bernstein FAIA, VP of Industry Strategy. The model was inserted into their Ecotect Analysis tool to develop the environmental strategies.

    I did have a meeting in the yellow room and it was most certainly “different”, sorry I didn’t get a photo. To be fair most meeting rooms are normal glazing.

    Ah, but your photo’s do not do ANY justice to the bright neon yellow of that conference room glass, nor do you show the equally obnoxious orange and blue glass in other conference rooms. I always hated having meetings in any of those rooms…it felt like I had been sent back in time to some LSD-influenced office design from the 60′s. Weirdness for weirdness’ sake…an interesting design intellectually, but not at all a pleasant space to work in.

    Having Lights that automatically dim or shut off when the sun shines in is wonderful! The lights which run along from the door to ceiling are great. The Abak environments is progressive design and is standardized so it will work in my different spaces.
