StudioK1 Creates a LEED Platinum Home
StudioK1 has helped its parent company, tk1sc, in creating a LEED Platinum home for both companies at the corporate headquarters in Irvine, California. Every single source within the project is LED with the total installed power consumption of 0.62 watts per square foot, bringing the overall power density down by 44% under that allowed by California’s Title 24, with a Lighting Power Reduction of 36.4% per LEED criteria. Lighting is controlled by a centralized building management system utilizing dimming, daylight harvesting, occupancy sensors and local control stations.
The goal, to demonstrate that the engineering/design firm practices what it preaches through energy efficiency and sustainability – while maintaining a high aesthetic standard – is evidenced by the project achieving LEED Platinum certification.
