A simple goal drives The Commons mixed-use development: Provide a world-class sustainable tenant and visitor experience in a net-zero energy building to be leased at market rates. In providing Interior Design services, Huntsman collaborated with core & shell architects Coburn Partners on the layout and design of two buildings comprising office and retail spaces. At the ground floor, public and common spaces invite the community to partake in the development's amenities, including flexible meeting/event spaces, revolving art exhibitions, a salon, spa, and restaurant.
The project’s siting, a solar panel-clad building shell, extensive daylighting, and optimized building performance contribute to the net-zero target. Principles of sustainability and efficiency guided the design of the interiors, including regionally sourced, zero-VOC and recycled content materials and furnishings, as well as LED lighting and energy star-rated fixtures and appliances. The overarching vision for the interior spaces is a connection to place and site. Throughout the buildings unique and varied views, along with a thoughtful finish palette and use of interior plant -scaping, create a forward-looking workplace focused on users' comfort and well-being.
