Palazzo Verdi Office Building
Greenwood Village, Colorado, USA
As one of Colorado’s greenest commercial office buildings, Palazzo Verdi—or Green Palace—is very aptly named.
The exterior of this 15-story office building is clad in subtle beige and buff concrete, as well as glass. The entrance welcomes visitors into a breathtaking Grand Atrium. This 55-foot-tall atrium frames splendid views of the Rocky Mountains. It also features expansive internationally-inspired artwork, a ground-floor museum and a full-service Italian restaurant.
The US Green Building Council certified Palazzo Verdi LEED Platinum. A series of design features helped achieve this certification. These features include direct lines of sight to the outside for over 90-percent of tenants, along with abundant natural daylighting. Likewise, efficient plumbing fixtures save more than 500 gallons of water each year. In fact, conservation measures extend to landscaping. Drought-tolerant plant materials use a grey water irrigation system, which uses only partially-treated water.
