The Microsoft Campus office building located in Herzliya, Israel is a 45,000-square-meter office building designed to provide an excellent and comfortable occupant work environment.
The “spirit” of the building combines the use of indoor and outdoor spaces by connecting all floors through stepped external terraces. The building also makes use of multiple gardens on the ground floor and the roof and includes many opportunities for relaxation, sports, and leisure activities for its occupants.
The project includes many sustainable features, such as a high-performance double skin façade with automatically controlled blinds, solar PV systems, and high-efficiency HVAC systems. Air conditioning condensate water is reused for irrigation.
The building is designed to encourage its employees to use alternative commuting methods by dedicating a cycling path that leads to a large bicycle storage room. Showers and changing room facilities are available to building occupants as well as charging points for e-bikes. It is designed to provide excellent working spaces that feature views to the outdoor and access to natural daylight.
The project was completed in 2020 and awarded LEED® V4 Gold certification.
Alfa completed the LEED certification to a higher rating than was initially expected.
Microsoft Campus is attempting a 3-star Fitwel rating as well.
Alfa provided energy, sustainability, LEED® and Fitwel® consulting for the project.
