On Friday, May 7, 2020, The Miller Hull Partnership, LLP, an award-winning architecture, planning, urban and interior design firm, earned Living Building Challenge Petal Certification for the renovation of its San Diego studio. The San Diego studio follows the firm’s Seattle studio in meeting this rigorous performance standard, making all of Miller Hull’s offices Petal certified.
“I’m proud of the commitment Miller Hull has made beyond their project work – to be accountable for their own operations and now have all of their own offices Living Building Challenge certified,” said Miller Hull Living Building Challenge Services Director Chris Hellstern. “It’s a significant achievement for the building industry because it continues to show the Living Buildings can be built in any climate with any building type and in this case, a commercial tenant improvement.”
The Miller Hull San Diego studio is the first project certified under the fourth version of the Living Building Challenge (LBC 4.0), which continues the standard’s mission of visionary, but attainable building goals, while focusing on the relationship between impact and effort in the design and construction industry.
