Edmunds.com Santa Monica “EdQuarters”, located just two miles from the beach and 12 miles from LAX, create a work environment unlike anything else in the L.A. area. All of the specified Fluxwerx luminaries use LED sources with a color temperature range of 3000K to 5700K, and with a CRI of 90-plus. Achieving a contrast ratio of less than 2:1 in the open workspaces and conference rooms not only enabled the project to achieve a glare-free design but also created a power density of just 0.72 watts per square foot, successfully surpassing the project’s energy goals.
The central overall concept of this project for Edmunds.com’s new HQ is motion. Architectural fluid shapes, gleaming finishes and connected spaces mixing the essence of roadways and highways create this truly unique space. The lighting design and fixtures had to become integral to that theme; we found the perfect solutions in Fluxwerx.
