Waltham, MA, USA
California-based software company was looking to double their footprint in their existing Waltham, MA space. Due to our existing relationship and integrated process, the company chose us to complete design and construction services for their 20,000 sqft expansion.
From the start of the project, we collaborated closely with the decision-making team to reach a design vision that met their functional needs and strict guidelines and standards. Using progressive budgeting and cost transparency, we were able to provide them with options that fit within their budget and worked within the existing conditions of the space. We reacted quickly to internal challenges, design scope changes, and pandemic-related hurdles to move the project forward while keeping the primary California-based stakeholders up to date.
The completed expansion ties local flair with their design and space standards. Using a pocket watch and the American Waltham Watch Company as concept inspiration, the office has a mix of intricacy and simplicity in both design and space planning. The pocket watch case represents the open office with thoughtfully placed textures and colors. The watch face connects to front facing areas like the entry, café, and collaboration and team zones. These focal spaces are contrasted with jeweled colors, intricate details, and whimsical patterns. The gears on the clock tie to the conference and huddle rooms with smooth transitions of tones, colors, and textures. The workplace provides the Waltham staff the space to meet their programming needs while seamlessly blending individual, collaboration, and community work areas.
Throughout the process, communication combined with our integrative technology kept expectations clear and mitigated risk while enabling us to meet their goals. We were able to meet their vision exactly and completed the workplace on time and within budget.
