The new SBA global head­quar­ters con­sol­i­dates all the Boca Raton employ­ees under one cor­po­rate owned roof with a master plan for a second build­ing for the campus which will be con­nected via a sky bridge. The build­ing pur­chased was a typ­i­cal office park spec build­ing which needed an over­haul to both look and func­tion as the global office for SBA.

As a quickly grow­ing leader in com­mu­ni­ca­tions and having a vast amount of busi­ness in South Amer­ica, the design direc­tion and pallet are inspired by the trop­ics. A crisp clean white enve­lope with float­ing cloud’ ceil­ing planes, bright LED light­ing using Selux M60 pen­dants, low/​light work­sta­tions, and a gen­er­ous use of vision glass for inter­nal offices pro­vide a very invit­ing, light filled envi­ron­ment, which is a huge depar­ture from the former dark perime­ter office and tall black work­sta­tion offices.

Com­bin­ing M60 recessed with the warm two tone Zebra wood ribbon accent anchors the double height lobby and public areas, while darker walnut panels and fur­nish­ings pro­vide a strik­ing accent and iden­tify the exec­u­tive and con­fer­ence areas. Bright green high­lights in carpet, uphol­stery, and strate­gi­cally located walls pro­vide a fresh yet sophis­ti­cated envi­ron­ment. Addi­tional orange and bright blue accents pro­vide a youth­ful, fun” tone on mul­ti­ple casual meet­ing areas, break rooms, and the large café.

Selux M60 was chosen for its ver­sa­til­ity and for cre­ative options in addi­tion to its high effi­ciency.
