NASA Sustainability Base

Imagine a working atmosphere designed in harmony with its environment. A building immersed in natural daylight and fresh air; one constructed to LEED Platinum standards and furnished with materials that are beneficial to your health. A building so smart and intuitive it knows exactly how much energy is consumed – and adapts itself based on weather, season and work patterns. NASA’s Sustainability Base is unlike any government building ever created. Using NASA innovations originally engineered for space travel and exploration, the 50,000 square-foot, lunar-shaped Sustainability Base is simultaneously a working office space, a showcase for NASA technology and an evolving exemplar for the future of buildings. Welcome to NASA’s latest mission on Earth.
