LEED Platinum Certified

The environmentally friendly building was designed and constructed by students from Studio 804, a design/build program at the University of Kansas School of Architecture, Design and Planning.

The 3,000 square foot building houses two classrooms, a lounge and exhibition/display space, and was built with a goal of achieving LEED platinum certification. Clad in reclaimed gray slate chalkboards, the building incorporates such energy-saving features as photovoltaic solar panels on the roof; a small, 2-kilowatt wind turbine; LED lighting; sedum rooftop plants and a rain-collecting cistern that will be used to water living walls of plants on the north sides of both classrooms as well as the lounge.
