For this private family foundation there was a strong desire to give the office a warm and open feeling. Using warm wood tones, soft lighting, and inviting furniture pieces the office is immediately welcoming. The design, optimized acoustics and the expansive views of Boston create a sense of peace and calm throughout the office.
This openness is essential to the flexibility of reception which doubles as a formal function space. The front boardroom glass pulls away to create a large open area. The adjacent counter-top ledge acts as a bar and serving area to serve guests when hosting functions.
Gathering is a part of the company’s culture, which is why beyond reception, in the heart of the office, the café and lounge is designed to speak to the employees. The over-sized leather furniture and large built-in screen transport employees to the comfort of their own homes. Every detail of the design was chosen so employees of this private family foundation can experience calm in the workplace.
