Essentially "upcycling" an outdated office building, Perkins+Will's transformation of 1315 Peachtree Street stands as a new civic model on Atlanta's signature street. Where there once stood a prominent driveway and parking deck, now a pedestrian-oriented plaza creates an open-air living room and reconnects the building to the street. The site design showcases the innovative use of materials and commitment to sustainable practices in the landscape, including creative stormwater management solutions throughout the site, such as cisterns, rain gardens, and porous paving surfaces. Certified LEED® Platinum, the project is a living model for small urban sites with big goals for sustainability.
