Global Financial Institution
Sunrise Corporate Center
Square Footage: 460,000
This Global Financial Institution's Corporate Center will be a 460,000 square foot office building with over 900,000 square feet of construction on a 40.8 acre parcel located in Sunrise, Florida. The office building is planned to be 5 stories with a 2-story parking garage. The campus will accommodate nearly 3,000 employees and service the Americas with more than 14 business units and a calling center. The regional center will serve Latin America, North America, and the Caribbean. Through an integrated team approach, Perkins+Will is providing architectural, interior, branding, and workplace expertise to create a sustainable, state-of-the-art facility.
The building is conceived as a dialogue with the natural landscape. The globally connected work performed in the office levels reaches out, metaphorically, and ‘pulls’ the landscape upwards from the earth. These linkages, in turn, become site retaining walls, accessible walkways, and a tapestry of planted berms which include an edible garden; all leading to the main amenities level of the project. The main level is expressed as a transparent architectural ‘reveal’ or space between the site and the cantilevered office structure above. The luminous white office structure is faceted to reflect the networks and connectivity of the global client and resonates with the sculpting and faceting of the berms and site work.
