Flooring Provides Stylish Pathway to Sustainability

The design for these floors needed to convey a high-end professional feel while maintaining the benefits which had been achieved using an access floor system. The architectural firm of Mark Cavagnero Assocs. had a clear vision of materials: teak plank wood, multi-piece porcelain and carpet. The challenge became how to blend these varying materials as transitions and maintain the functionality of the access floor system. At 30-stories and 450,000 sq. ft., 350 Mission Street is the first LEED Platinum high-rise in the city. Designed with a sharp focus on sustainability—not the least being more efficient HVAC delivery—a goal that fit in well with the desire of the developer, Kilroy Realty Corp.
