VC completed the 75,000 square foot headquarters for Imprivata in Waltham, MA. Spread over two floors, the central feature of the space is the monumental stair connecting the reception to the café. The stair’s architecture features platform seating on three sides and a stage that overlooks the café seating. This gathering feature is not only for circulation; it also creates a central point for collaboration that’s both formal and informal – the company-wide town halls occur here with a drop-down AV screen, as do impromptu meetings throughout the day over a cup of coffee in one of the many options for casual seating. Imprivata looked to bring warmth throughout the office space, which is reflected in the use of wood tones and finish choices. The company’s brand is evident as one moves through the space, with bold applications of colors on the walls, floors, and furnishings. Flexibility for meeting is woven into all spaces, with AV-ready booths, meeting rooms, and pop-up spaces with mobile AV solutions featured in all wings of the headquarters.
