Their mission greets you at the front door. Awesome.

Client Need

Seventh Generation's offices are located in downtown Burlington.

Their '1st floor' is actually on the 3rd floor. There was little need for privacy from outside foot traffic, but the main stairwell has offices around it's perimeter and that's where privacy was needed.

From individual offices, conference rooms, and meditation places...shades were needed. They called on us because we are a locally owned family business, and our window decor is made right around the corner from them in Vermont.

"Transforming commerce, Building communities, Enhancing health, and Nurturing nature."



"In early 2011, former Burt’s Bees CEO John Replogle came on board as our new CEO.Today, John is leading our company and employees to a cleaner and greener future that we hope will leave the Earth in better shape than we first found it 23 years ago. We’ve come a very long way from the tiny mail order catalog that gave us our name and the handful of employees who planted the seed that would one day grow into a whole new kind of company making a much different kind of product. Ours has been and continues to be a remarkable journey. And we can’t wait to see where it takes us next." - Courtesy of Seventh Gen.

Our Solution



Looking in from the central staircase, each room has large windows to create an open flow, but they desperately needed a privacy option.

There were times, that we had to mount the shading system to the stairwell side. 

Below is a great example of the amount of privacy is achieved for the team, when the shades are lowered.

Some of the windows face Lake Champlain(LUCKY!) and the glorious afternoon Sun can be BLINDING!



But now Seventh Gen has it 'made in the shade'. Awe-some.

In the classroom/lunchroom/communal space, we came across very different needs.

Safety exits, and (when needed) washable fabric!



The translucence of the white solar fabric, will not create a 'cave like' atmosphere. Instead the shade bounces the light into the room, and still maintaining privacy and the safety exits accessibility. Trifecta!

 

Seventh Gen is also a very dog friendly office(my FAVORITE kind!) Here's Bella, modeling the latest in Solar shades. Ideal for every office decor!
