The Green Building

Award winning project The Green Building is Louisville's first commercial structure anticipating platinum LEED certification.

Acknowledged as "the coolest building in town", The Green Building has already hosted some of the state's most exciting and influential organizations, individuals and events since first opening its doors in the fall of 2008, breathing life back into the city's long distressed and forgotten East Market District (a Federally classified distressed area), also called the “NuLu” arts district.

Rehabilitation of the 110-year old former dry goods store began in 2007, after independent film producer Gill and his urban planner wife Augusta Brown Holland purchased the structure. Intent upon rescuing the building from decades of misuse, the project included resuscitating the structural masonry shell and infusing it with a modern core, including a 40 foot high lobby, expansive natural lighting, eco-friendly materials, and renewable energy systems, as well as extensive solar power, geothermal wells, and recycled denim insulation.

The Green Building was designed by Los Angeles based architecture firm “(fer) studio”. Design Principal Doug Pierson, a former Project Architect with Frank Gehry and the Culver City firm, Hodgetts and Fung, Pierson has developed progressive academic, commercial, civic, and residential projects around the world.

The Green Building is home to a contemporary art space (The Green Building Gallery), multiple event rooms, offices, and 732 Social, a street facing café from the James Beard nominated Ton Brothers (Basa Modern Vietnamese).
