Peninsula Corporate Center

The developer of the Peninsula Corporate Center in Boca Raton, Fla., designed this facility to achieve maximized use of the two-acre site. It was the owner’s desire to create a structure capable of withstanding hurricane force winds.

Tilt-Up construction was used to ensure a durable, low-maintenance facility. This method was applied to erect the building’s frame, which required recessed panel sections with tubular metal design frames and heavy textured paint to emphasize revealed panel sections. Additionally, built-up precast capping, medallions applied to stand off panels, and precast decorative masonry block added to the building’s unique style and form.

The single three-story building, composed of six rectangular building components, is linked together with a covered arcade that encompasses a central courtyard. This intentional layout allows for great natural ventilation and encourages harvesting natural lighting in each of the building’s tenant spaces.

With a small group of office spaces available for lease, the plans called for an individualized design scheme for certain areas of the facility. The color-scheme remained consistent with a natural theme. The upper two-stories are a bold mustard yellow color accented with precast block railings and tile insert panels. The color-scheme was highlighted with the precast medallions.

The exterior street fenestration was capped with a high ribbed metal mansard and gable roof. The interior courtyard is enclosed with a Tilt-Up arcade. The panels simulate columns, and the courtyard’s open-air style incorporates a sense of nature with passion vines growing from various site-cast concrete planters.
