The pine interior paneling is placed horizontally between vertical trusses, which are combined with cables to provide a strong structural support system for the roof. It’s a fitting addition to a forward-thinking structure that seeks to be as sustainable as possible, earning a LEED Platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
