In late June, ASID made the move to its new 8,500-square-foot headquarters in Washington, D.C. Designed by Perkins+Will, the space
centers around the philosophy of holistic wellness, tying in health, well-
being, and sustainability. It is registered for the WELL Building Standard
and LEED, and is on target to achieve platinum level for both.
Incorporating innovative features such as a circadian lighting system
and fully automated shades that adjust based on solar positioning,
biophilic design strategies exist throughout the building, including a
screen displaying real-time environmental attributes from sound levels
to air and water quality to electrical consumption. The effort of the
features combined aims to create a space that supports health and well-being, and improves the organization's productivity, engagement, and
retention, while focusing on the seven principals of WELL: air and water,
nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.
Additionally, the office will work as a study center to help the
industry better understand the impact of wellness. Funded by the ASID
Foundation and in partnership with Cornell University, staff members
volunteered to participate in a pre- and post-occupancy research study,
evaluating how the design for the new space has continued toward a
healthier lifestyle and increased productivity.
