Interior designer and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP) Sarah Barnard of Sarah Barnard Design has recently achieved recognition from the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) as a WELL Accredited Professional. The WELL Building Standard is the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness.

WELL was developed by integrating scientific and medical research on environmental health, behavioral factors, health outcomes and demographic risk factors that affect health with leading practices in building design and management. WELL Certification and the WELL AP credentialing program are third-party administered through IWBI's collaboration with Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), which also administers LEED certification, the global green building program, and the LEED professional credentialing program. This relationship assures that WELL works seamlessly with LEED.

Established in 2003, and LEED accredited since 2007, Sarah Barnard Design is well known for creating healthy, artful spaces that are respectful of history and deeply connected to nature.  Notable projects include; National Geographic Entertainment, National Immigration Law Center, Heritage Square Museum, backstage retreats at the Academy of Country Music Awards and Teen Choice Awards as well as countless private residences.
