Dermalogica Academy is housed in a 6,000 square foot street level space the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.
Sounds pretty straight-forward, until you see the great seal that denotes this space was built
to comply with strict Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) eco-requirements, making it the only LEED-certified trade school in New York City.
How did we do it? The classrooms are virtually paperless, with interactive “smartboard” technology and iTouch, iPhone and iPad decks allowing students to keep their carbon footprint light. Likewise, the shopping environment supplies customer receipts via e-mail instead of printed hard copy. Recycled and locally sourced materials have been used in the build-out, with low-flow plumbing, energy.
