Margulies Perruzzi was engaged to consolidate this client’s space from two floors to one, designing a more collaborative, team environment. The reconfiguration eliminated a communicating stair between floors 13 and 14 and created adequate space on floor 14 so that the client was able to sub-lease the lower floor. A large conference room opposite the main entrance was reconfigured into a new reception and waiting area.
The design team repurposed the infilled stair space, adjacent conference room, and two cubicle areas into an open collaboration space, a conference room, an all-hands meeting area, and large pantry. Striking red accent walls are an ode to the former large, curved glass stairway which provided access between the two floors. The renovation also created five meeting/huddle rooms, five offices, and two large conference rooms.
The elevator lobby was upgraded with textured panels, reflective ceilings, and linear LED lighting welcoming staff and guests to the new vibrant reception that celebrates views of Boston Harbor and seaport district. To update the office aesthetic, MP applied a new refreshed paint palette, new carpet, and wood tone LVT throughout. The renovation allowed for a contemporary and inspiring workspace for employees.
