We're designing and constructing The Joinery according to the Living Building Challenge.™ The intense green building certification from the Living Future Institute is organized into 7 Petals:
Health + Happiness
The idea is that the built environment should function as cleanly and efficiently as a flower.
Click through the slideshow to learn more about The Joinery's approach to each Petal.
Each Petal is further divided into Imperatives, which address specific issues through detailed requirements. The Joinery has to meet all 20 Imperatives to become a certified Living Building.
