The Bill & Melinda Gates Campus Foundation, which opened its doors in mid-2011, is located in the heart of the city, near the Seattle Center and Space Needle as well as the "Experience Music Project", designed by Frank Gehry, creating one of the most important architectural spaces of the city.

The new campus, which covers an area of nearly 80,000 m2 divided into two boomerang-shaped buildings, has been built using sustainable and efficient energy. That is why the campus has a LEED accreditation, which certifies energy excellence and the environmental-friendly design of the complex.

Within this large complex, Andreu World has equipped various areas with the VALERIA, CARLOTTA and RDL collections. All products featured in the installation are made of FSC wood from 100% sustainable, reforested areas.
