Herman Miller - Chippenham

The European headquarters of furniture designer and manufacturer Herman Miller combines office and showroom space to explore new ways of working in a sustainable facility.

Designed by Gensler and called the Village Green, the 20,000-square-foot, pavilion-style building sensitively complements its leafy surroundings, while reinforcing the brand for staff and visiting clients.

In addition to providing a light-filled workplace, the open-plan naturally ventilated facility incorporates sustainable materials in a dynamic “customer experience journey” that promotes Herman Miller’s products and ethos of environmental stewardship.

For its achievements, the headquarters has obtained BREEAM Excellent and LEED® Gold ratings.
