MP provided design services for investment management company Boston Trust Walden’s new office space in Boston’s One Beacon building.
Boston Trust Walden prioritized downsized offices, access to daylight for workstations, and collaboration and socialization. To achieve these goals, MP designed perimeter offices with full glass fronts to bring light into the space’s interior. MP created an employee hub to serve as the core collaboration area. Featuring a coffee bar, pantry, and a variety of seating options, the space encourages spontaneous collaboration. A client area located adjacent to the hub boasts four conference rooms of various sizes.
A unique feature of the space is the trading area. Located in the interior of the space, it was designed to have a direct sight line to the stunning view outside.
MP selected natural tones mixed with brighter colors to create a welcoming environment for visitors and staff. Materials were selected that aligned with the firm’s focus on social and environmental responsibility, ensuring products used met this high standard.
