Bank of America, Charlotte, North Carolina

trading floors are traditionally gloomy, stifling, windowless, and intense working environments crammed with professionals either scurrying about or enchained to desks. But Bank of America's (BoA) Charlotte, North Carolina, trading floor-winner of 2005 Lumen and IIDA Award of Excellence merits-defies such convention. Designed by the joint Manhattan-based team of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) and Cosentini Lighting Design, this high-tech, high-performance facility both exceeds the financial industry's quality standards (a chair, table, and computer monitor) and conveys BoA's corporate identity. Re-imagining what a computer-age trading floor can be, the luminous 180,000-square-foot facility not only serves as BoA's vehicle for recruiting industry-leading traders from competitors in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, it also provides the open, comfortable, and inspiring environment these traders need to excel in serving clients.
