Epsten Group, a design firm located in Atlanta sought to transform a 1940s hardware shop into a building with high-performance energy expectations, occupant comfort, and indoor air quality. Energy efficiency has earned them an Energy Star score of 92. More than 97% of The Edge’s existing building shell was reused, greatly reducing the total environmental impact and the amount of new materials needed.
