Margulies Perruzzi designed a new U.S. headquarters for Cimpress and its well-known brand Vistaprint, a global supplier of customized marketing products and services to micro businesses and consumers. Designing the interior fit-out concurrently with designing the base building for Hobbs Brook Management, MP was able to leverage their understanding of the building to allow for greater creativity in design solutions.

A two-story lobby was designed to maximize branding opportunities. To promote greater intra-floor circulation, MP designed a monumental staircase in the lobby, adding glass and upgraded finishes to make the stair a convenient and compelling way to travel.

MPA created an open and collaborative workspace design, supplemented by support spaces custom-tailored to Cimpress’ work style. Every desk is equipped with sit-to-stand technology, letting employees freely customize their space.

The common spaces use an all-LED light fixture package to minimize maintenance and maximize energy efficiency. A networked digital lighting control system monitors and regulates energy usage.

Amenities include a living green wall in the cafeteria, a fitness center and a game room. Bike racks and showers are provided for biking commuters, with a dedicated shuttle service to the Alewife MBTA Red Line station.
