The large common spaces such as the café, game room, and collaborative “boulevard” keep the space active and engaging while mixing business with fun.
Pops of color in the space offset the industrial feel of the surroundings, bringing in colors found in nature. Yellows, greens and blues bring life to the space in addition to the aged oak wood tones to soften the inherent harshness of the exposed mechanicals.
ServiceNow had an expiring lease at another office building in Waltham, MA, when they decided to make the leap to an MPA-designed Class A office building for Hobbs Brook Management at 275 Wyman Street. This move served as a boost in the ServiceNow image and importance in the tech community, as they leased 33,360 SF from their sub landlord of Vistaprint.
In the new space, ServiceNow wanted to shed their corporate aesthetic and stay true to their roots in the tech community. With exposed mechanicals open to the structural deck above, polished concrete floors and a green moss wall in the reception area, MPA merged their corporate ideals with their office space so they could exist harmoniously.
A training space, and technology filled conference, huddle and phone rooms round out the space, providing access to technology ServiceNow needs to maintain communication with clients all over the world. The balance of acoustically sensitive large meeting spaces and private spaces were crucial in this space where ServiceNow utilized a motorized height adjustable benching furniture layout in the main open office spaces to maximize headcount.
