Designed by Cannon Design in association with Jenkins Peer Architects, this two year long project was completed during the pandemic when so many businesses were shut down. The University of North Carolina Charlotte’s University Recreation Center promoted a work-life balance for the students at a time when mental health was an issue. This facility encouraged a balance of academics and exercise to balance stress & create healthy habits on campus rather than off-site. LED lighting was important because of its ability to improve morale and productivity by energizing everyone and literally brightening their day. Good lighting is proven to reduce headaches, stress, and drowsiness as well as anxiety.
Selux M100 LED Direct and M100 LED Direct/Indirect linear and custom configurations (pendent and recessed) were used throughout this project for its exceptional luminaire performance, versatility, health & well-being. Lines of light were chosen to illuminate the way in the entrance, up the stairway and throughout the gym. The direct lighting was perfect for lighting specific areas in combination with the indirect that brightened the room and improved visibility.
