San Francisco International Airport Terminal 2, Environmental Graphics and Wayfinding

Above and Beyond

A sleek new San Francisco International Airport terminal exceeds LEED goals and engages passengers in the joys of sustainable travel.   

Passengers making their way through SFO’s new Terminal 2 have become participants in modern sustainability, San Francisco style. Opened in April 2011, the renovated terminal goes beyond LEED requirements while offering “a different kind of travel experience”—what the design team at Gensler calls an “epicurean” experience of pleasure, living modestly, and treading lightly.


AccuBraille (S. San Francisco, Calif.) is introducing EcoBraille, a fully compliant ADA sign made of 100% post-consumer waste. With testing complete, the company will take orders for EcoBraille beginning in March. The signs are made of ABS plastics derived from items such as computer towers, monitors, scanners, and printers. The signs feature a unique organic look that does not require painting, but AccuBraille can also finish the signs using Matthews Low-VOC paints.

Accubraille (San Francisco) was recently contracted to provide all the signage for a 754- unit luxury apartment building in San Francisco’s trendy SOMA neighborhood. The illuminated unit signs include a brushed-nickel laminate faceplate with cut-out unit numbers and an ADA-compliant element featuring AccuBraille’s Infused product with DuPlex font. The DuPlex line meets the recently updated ADA guidelines while allowing for additional design freedom.
