The new corporate headquarters campus of Deckers Brands, a global manufacturer of outdoor brands like Ugg Australia, Sanuk and Teva Shoes, includes creative open office spaces, retail areas, a spacious rotunda, indoor gymnasium with locker rooms, and a warehouse.
The rotunda features a custom panelized ceiling which acts as the visual highlight and main event space for the campus. Both the retail spaces and rotunda are visible to outside traffic, which are lit to excite the casual passerby. The lighting design required flexibility in order to accommodate various functions including daily office work, special events, and art displays with an emphasis on energy-efficiency.
The design primarily consists of linear fluorescent and LED sources, which enhance the sleek and modern aesthetic of the buildings. The design team also made strides in energy-efficiency by aligning lighting fixtures directly over work surfaces and critical tasks, while allowing light to softly fade at less critical circulation paths.
