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.
