Office space is open and transparent.

Openness and transparency—concepts central to software developer Mozilla's corporate culture—are incorporated in the upgrade of this office space. A low-voltage LED lighting system provides each lamp with its own daylight, occupancy and temperature sensors to help reduce energy consumption.

A two-story glass wall brings natural light into the lobby by day and is illuminated by warm-colored lights at night. The project team dealt with an unanticipated opening in the concrete slab by adding steel reinforcement.
