Green Lofts on Rose embodies a focused effort to honor and recognize a greener way to live and work. Inspired by the movie An Inconvenient Truth, the owners were determined to build eco-friendly, multi-use buildings in the Los Angeles area. Phase I of Green Lofts completed this week with installation solar powered landscape lighting. The entire location, now runs off solar power.
Green Lofts opens their doors as a carbon neutral production location for film, television, and video. Serving the entertainment industry, this uniquely designed structure reduces working environmental impact with a green location that becomes an intrinsic part of making film and television production. As the entertainment industry focuses on preserving the environment, this green location provides the perfect project environment.
Green Lofts filtered each step in their planning, demolition, and construction process with the environment at forefront. Recycling materials from the original structure and an eco-friendly focus on all procurement and construction management were maximized throughout the project. Materials used in the building are all sustainable; Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood, recycled content steel, energy star appliances, photovoltaic energy production, and thermal solar hot water systems.
By following Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program parameters, every design and planning decision was made green with a focus on sustainability and minimal environmental impact. The location was developed to achieve LEED Platinum designation and reach the maximum points on GreenPoint checklist from Build It Green.
