Completed in 2010 by DPR and ZGF Architects, the Clif Bar & Company's Headquarters in Emeryville has just received LEED Platinum certification.
The facility comprises 115,000 square feet of office space. The cutting-edge facility also includes an employee cafe, onsite childcare facility, theater, fitness room, yoga room, massage rooms, and bike storage.
Green features include a solar array-fitted rooftop, which provides the bulk of the building's power. The solar thermal panels also generate 70% of the heat needed to heat water. The headquarters also includes four atrium gardens that provide sunlight and rain to the plants and garden greenery. Read more about the project here.
