Undertaken simultaneously with the Building 36 renovation, the renovation of Building 220 consisted of an adaptive re-use to multi-tenant office use. Building 220 was constructed in the early 1900's and served as a school for bakers and cooks. Huntsman's scope included establishing finish material and energy efficiency standards. Existing non-conforming historical handrails were maintained and supplemented with new conforming elements. Buildings are naturally ventilated, and designers specified the use of sustainable and recycled materials. An energy efficient and ergonomic design employed indirect lighting throughout the building, remaining sensitive to the historic spaces. The design also complied with the Secretary of Interiors Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
