JOY of PUMA:
the Factory Outlet
Ontario Mills Ontario, Calif.
With numerous disciplines including researchers and scientists
involved early on, this store’s carbon footprint is 25 percent smaller
than previous iterations, as certified by the Global Research Institute.
A “design by subtraction” philosophy also yielded 30 percent lower
energy consumption as well as fewer materials overall thanks to the
lack of partition walls. All wood is renewable, all metals are recycled,
and Plyboo and Wheatboard are both FSC-certified. LED lighting in
a diagonal pattern significantly reduces the lighting quantity and
power load. Modular construction methods further reduce waste.
And an independent Cx is providing ongoing commissioning. For this
project, less truly is more.
