Blurring the lines between workplace and habitat, Etsy’s 200,000-square-foot headquarters is one of the largest Living Building Challenge (LBC) Petal-Certified buildings in New York City. LBC Certification is administered by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) and serves as one of the world's most rigorous sustainability standards for buildings. The three-year journey began with a broad vision as partner to the Etsy community, which is realized through four key design concepts: celebrating the art of making; telling the Etsy story through a narrative journey; embracing nature; and capitalizing on sustainable, authentic and locally sourced materials. Faithfully carried out in every detail, these concepts resulted in a space in which Etsy can truly live its mission.
