Reebok's 522,000 square foot world headquarters outside Boston by NBBJ Architects of Seattle features elements that convey the energy of the athletic products company: curved walls and windows, tight angles, and sleek interiors with ceilings that blend into walls. Overall the design creates "a sense of movement, achievement, and cutting-edge creativity to reflect the company's personality," says company spokesperson Bonnie Duncan. In recognition, the design won a prestigious American Architectural Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. Ceiling systems from Hunter Douglas are a key element, with 300C wide panels creating smooth, uninterupted surfaces in the outdoor soffits; a Box 4 linear system defining the walls and ceiling of the indoor terrace; and acoustically lined panels controlling sound in the three-story, 30,000 square-foot fitness center. Better yet, the nearly 100,000 square feet of Hunter Douglas products are all composed of recycled products, helping meet Reebok's environmental goals.
