The project presented here is a renovation of a 1900 cultural landmark in Boston. The 15,000 square foot office space was formerly home to the local horticultural society. The project sought to maintain the splendor of the near thirty foot high space and emphasize the character of the original brickwork and vast clerestory skylights. The tenant, a local publisher of numerous periodicals, was interested in a fresh contemporary image set against the historic structure. Interior design brought a warm palette reflected in the wall colors, carpet selection, and system furniture selections. The basic spatial needs were to accommodate a growing staff, a periodical library, additional meeting rooms, and improved mechanical systems and lighting throughout.
