NARRATIVE

Architecture for Humanity (AFH) is a non-profit design services firm targeting LEED CI Gold for its new offices in San Francisco, California. With a mission to “build a more sustainable future using the power of design,” AFH channels resources of the global design, construction, development and funding communities to projects that make a difference locally.

Joined by multiple members of the CRE community, stok provided pro-bono LEED CI consulting services for the firm’s new office renovation. Aligning with AFH’s overarching sustainability goals for the project, stok assisted AFH to showcase its work, values and mission through the project’s re-used materials, energy-efficiency and green features. Through the LEED CI certification process, stok helped develop case study and tour guide materials to assist AFH in educating the public, funders, chapters and members with its mission of sustainability.
