IIDA South Florida Chapter Honors HOK as Firm of the Year

FIU Mango

The International Interior Design Association South Florida Chapter’s annual SANDI Awards honor the most innovative designs created in South Florida and the local design community.

HOK was named firm of the year and the firm’s design of the Florida International University Management and New Growth Opportunities Building (FIU MANGO) received a design excellence award in the institutional category.

FIU MANGO is a new mixed-use building on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus, housing the College of Business Administration, FIU Online and a food court for Business Services. Throughout the six-story facility, blue and gray textiles accent wood tones and gold-stained concrete. The design accommodates quiet study stations, collaborative workspaces and private offices. Ample amounts of natural light, along with the use of several recycled materials and energy-efficient fixtures, contribute to the facility’s pursuit of LEED Gold certification.

HOK’s FIU MANGO design team included Pedro Valdes, Tommy Sinclair, Jonathan Rae and Eddie Pabon.
