Text description provided by the architects. Boston based DesignLAB Architects designed the World Headquarters for the International Fund for Animal Welfare(IFAW). Given the mission of the IFAW ("provide a better world for animals and people"), the challenge was to incorporate this through sustainable design.

The program distributed in 54,000sqf is arranged in three clean volumes sitting on a reclaimed brownfield site. The volumes are open to the outside, integrated with the surroundings, through transparent planes. To control the sun over these facades, a series of louvres are arranged along them as you can see on the photos.

The building received the LEED Gold Certification, validating the sustainable strategy.
