Located just north of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and the Museum for Discovery & Science, the 100 Avenue of the Arts project has 49,000 square feet of office space, 3,000 square feet of retail space, and 109 parking spaces at 700 NE 7th Avenue.

Balance Between Positive and Negative Forms with a Delineated Fin System

Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, 100 Avenue of the Arts is at the cross axis of downtown and the arts district. With a sophisticated harmony of positive and negative forms, the identity of this building lies juxtaposed between the playfulness of the city and the refined character of its programmatic use.

The floating gestures wrap a glass box which further draws the public in from the street. The positive/negative balance is achieved from a delineated fin system. Vertical fins to the west and deep overhangs to the south simultaneously filter out harsh direct daylight and push indirect light deep into the interior space.

Bold and Imaginative Lobby

The interior lobby mimics the strong vertical fin design motif of the building’s exterior. Decorative pendant lighting hangs in neat rows at varying lengths, drawing the eye upwards and instilling the space with grandeur. Moreover, the bold combination of concrete and wood provides a seamless balance between warm and cool elements. Notably, wood vertical fins on the wall base and modern terrazzo flooring with large chunks further the contrast between whimsy and elegance.
