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.

Sited on a corner lot, facing a busy street on one side and a quiet cul-de-sac on the other, the project presented many challenges. Among them was working with city officials and neighborhood groups to rezone the lot, from single-family to multi-family use, a process that determined much of the project's program: The units had to be family-oriented, have no less than two bedrooms each, and provide off-street parking. Pearson also hoped to create a memorable entrance to the neighborhood and make the development appear uncrowded on its half-acre lot. More
