National Renewable Energy Laboratory

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is the only Federally owned and funded laboratory dedicated to the research, development, commercialization and deployment of renewable energy technologies. ArtHouse worked with a large team of scientists and Federal contractors to design a sign program that both complemented and drew inspiration from the goals of the laboratory. Metallic finishes, geometric shapes and clean lines tell the story of sustainability and scientific research and the signs are solar powered, to add another dimension of sustainable design. The incorporation of the innovative signage and interpretive sign program led to NREL becoming LEED certified.
