Friends of the Earth is an international non-profit working on environmental, social, political and human rights issues. Their campaigns stretch beyond the traditional arena of the conservation movement and seek to address the economic and development aspects of sustainability.
Friends of the Earth moved from their San Francisco high rise office to the LEED certified David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley, CA.
Astrid Design incorporated mid-century vintage furniture with furniture that was donated, all while creating a cohesive and elegant solution. All decor and furniture was sourced second-hand, offering an eclectic and fun working environment. Acoustic panels proved to have form and function in this intimate setting, creating a dynamic wall montage throughout the space. Designing a space with privacy and with the illusion of partitions, in an open floor-plan, was a challenge well accommodated.
