Microsoft: A trailblazer for accessibility

Microsoft’s Herzliya campus was designed to support innovation and accessibility while being environmentally friendly. It is the first “LEED V4 Gold” certified building in Israel. Which makes it one of the most sustainable buildings in the country.

It uses innovative technologies such as:

  1. WaterGen which generates water from air moisture
  2. GreenWall platform to nurture vegetation growth, and
  3. RightHear’s wayfinding system which provides geo-specific guidance for the blind and visually impaired
