Endurance International Group

Endurance International Group sought out Fusion Design Consultants for the 1st floor expansion of their headquarters in Burlington, Massachusetts. EIG originally occupied the top two floors of their building and this project was an opportunity to expand Endurance International Group’s workspace as well as create a new main entry area that highlights EIG’s culture from the moment one walks through the door. 

In addition to enhancing EIG’s brand, a major goal for this renovation was flexibility. The space lacked a place to suitably hold “all hands meetings”, so the new lobby design was an opportunity to integrate custom stadium seating that serves to gather the entire company together and also provide space for small groups to informally meet. 

Instead of traditional seating and a boardroom, the lobby space features a vibrant coffee bar and garage-door fronted conference room, both elements speaking to EIG’s culture and workforce demographic. 

A new custom staircase surrounded by banquette seating and highlighted by bold copper pendants creates a vital link between the first and second floors. The resulting effect of all these design elements is a cohesive and vibrant workplace that inspires and represents EIG’s energetic and collaborative culture.

Wellesley Gateway

The recently completed renovations to Wellesley Gateway focused on repositioning and rebranding this existing suburban office building. Fusion’s designs created new amenity spaces and the concept introduced hospitality-inspired elements throughout the design of these new spaces. The Lounge and informal meeting spaces were created utilizing varying furniture styles, decorative lighting, area rugs, custom millwork and wallcoverings to create interesting and comfortable spaces. The new Coffee Bar amenity was designed featuring graphic walls and millwork details to enhance the brand and identity of Wellesley Gateway. An existing Café was also enhanced with new lighting, flooring and furniture that created a central focus within the space while endeavoring to draw the eye to the inviting outdoor patio space.  

Custom graphics and branding were also incorporated into the Fitness Center to create a sense of energy and exhilaration.  The existing common areas received new signage and wayfinding as well - designed to enhance the brand, assist clients and visitors and maintain the vibrant identity throughout.

MORSE Corp.

MORSE Corp, a technology company located in Cambridge, aimed to move into a new office space of 4,000 SF that would clearly reflect their mission and identity. With this in mind, Fusion created a unique, innovative workplace with a cohesive and creative design that stood apart from other surrounding tech companies. Openness and maximizing natural light were vital goals from the beginning, as the generous window line offers stellar views across the Charles River to Boston. Minimal buildout, exposed painted deck, and glass fronts allowed for these goals to be achieved throughout the project.  

The MORSE-blue and other associated brand colors were significant factors in selecting the finishes for the project, with splashes of the blue used in flooring, glass, paint, and custom cabinetry. The main entrance is designed as the centerpiece of the office, using the dramatic angled wood slat ceiling cloud mirrored by blue vinyl-woven flooring, both connected vertically on each end by blue glass. The blue glass panels repeat within each enclosed lounge-like meeting room and are used as markerboards for MORSE’s frequent brainstorming and working sessions.  

The finishes, lighting, and spatial layout come together to create a bright, energetic, and dynamic design that reflects the impactful and enthusiastic spirit of this unique company.

One Tech & Two Tech Drive

The recently completed common area renovations at One & Two Tech Drive have transformed once dark and dated buildings into light, modern and vibrant gathering spaces in keeping with the repositioning goals of the campus.

For One Tech, the team sought to establish a project vision that highlighted the natural light within the common areas and took material inspiration from the natural setting of the campus.

The elevator shaft is the major focal point with rich wood cladding and accent lighting greeting the visitor as they walk through the main entrance. A new sculptural staircase connects to the second floor and anchors a new grab-and-go kiosk. Various new seating areas in the lobby provide distinctive zones for meeting and socializing.

The renovation at Two Tech includes a refresh of the existing lobby with new art, furniture and a complementary finish palette. The biggest impact is the renovated cafe, including a new large glass wall that provides maximum visibility from the lobby.

Blinker Branding

41 Winter Visual Identity

Attracting new tech tenants.

Blinker Branding was brought on to create an attention grabbing visual identity that would stand out amongst all other establishments residing on Winter Street. Our goal was to create a memorable and recognizable identity for the building that would highlight the building’s entrance and attract new occupants.

As 41 Winter is the home to many tech companies, Blinker kept this in mind while designing a contemporary logo. The result was a simplified design with the use of implied line and high contrast for an eye-catching brand.

The Foot + Ankle Store

Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Orthopedics chose Fusion Design Consultants Inc. to create a retail shop at their Waltham campus. The new Foot + Ankle Store is an extension of the services MGH offers at that satellite location.

As a collaboration of both our interior design and graphic design teams, the goal of the project was to encourage a feeling of openness, accessibility and to promote sales.

Using bright finishes, a fresh color palette and decorative light fixtures, the store evokes the same perception of fitness and health that its products promote. The challenge in this project was to create a space that is modern and customized while also embracing the functionality that is required of a retail store. With the help of the graphics and detailed architecture, the union between artistry and practicality is seamless.

The Fantastical

Combining Reality with Something Magical.

The Fantastical is a brand advertising agency that occupies the entire fourth floor of the iconic Yankee Publishing Building located in Haymarket Square. Fusion designed a space that includes

30 dramatic chandeliers, bamboo hardwood floors, chair rails throughout, and an oversized dining room table made from refurbished doors to create an eclectic residential feel.

More than ever it is crucial for today's office space to reflect the personality of its inhabitants. It was clear to Fusion's design team that The Fantasticals creative team is fueled by "unrestrained imagination," which led to a unique design solution that supported and motivated their inventive work philosophy.

Due to restrictions of the historical building and the desire to maintain the open floor plan, Fusion created floor-to-ceiling screens made from conduit piping, which are the design highlight of the space. The screens provide power and privacy for each workstation, while still allowing light to filter through them. The industrial screens provide a dramatic juxtaposition with the elegant chandeliers that populate the exposed ceilings, giving the space a refined yet edgy personality.

Transwestern

Brokering the Deal.

Transwestern sought to relocate their office to accommodate company growth and selected Fusion to help redefine its spatial and aesthetic needs. Fusion and RBJ worked together closely to devise a program and floor plan that enabled greater collaboration and work efficiency.

Transwestern works on the credos of ‘Better Relationships’, ‘Better Place to Work’ and ‘Better Coverage’. Always keeping this in mind, Fusion designed a “Better Space’ following their belief that “Better is Bigger”.

Extensive glass walls allow interoffice transparency and open exterior views, while a central café and commons encourage personal interaction. The themes of transparency and collaboration are inherent in this space and are brought to life with several of the aesthetic creations. A floor-to-ceiling aerial map mounted on glass is an impressive focal point and a dynamic register of project locations.

The material palette includes clear glass, blue glass and white surfaces with contrasting rich highlights of wood, marble, and textured wall covering. This successful commercial real estate firm was able to confirm that ‘better’ certainly turned out to ‘bigger’.

Piper Jaffray

A Dimensional Experience.

The quickly growing investment bank and asset management firm turned to Fusion to design their new Boston office. Fusion was charged to create a design which combined more traditional materials with modern and refined elements. The design incorporates 3 dimensional features in the custom wood office fronts as well as the detailed reception area ceiling. In addition, Fusion designed a custom reception desk of marble and stone and integrated custom millwork in the board room.

All elements of the project showcase how Fusion worked closely with Piper Jaffrey to incorporate their corporate standards in a new and innovative way.

Tower Point

Fusion redesigned the Tower Point lobby to reclaim its street level presence and high traffic location in addition to providing an inviting interior communal gathering space.

The building was originally constructed in 1877 as a manufacturing building. The property underwent an extensive redevelopment in 1988.  Tower Point completed this additional aesthetic upgrade to take further advantage of tenant relocations and the high demand for brick and beam office buildings in the Seaport District. 

The design by Fusion has created a light, open, volumetric space at ground level rising through the second story. Sleek, white back painted glass and high gloss metal accents contrast with the natural brick and reclaimed wood, adding warmth to the modern refresh. The new lighter finishes, in conjunction with contemporary upholstered chairs in pops of red and the custom map graphic, are the major highlights of the new space.

The new design also addressed wayfinding by adding a digital built in screen with tenant directory information that all visitors appreciate nowadays.

Idea Paint

Designed to Enhance the Brand.

Fusion designed IdeaPaint’s new 7,600 square foot work space to seamlessly blend elements of a working showroom and a collaborative office environment. Nearly two-thirds of the space is enhanced with writable surface, offering a real-time demonstration of IdeaPaint’s myriad applications.

The entry is an informal, approachable reception area – a “hello space” – which sets the tone for the vibrant and open office space. Comfortable seating and writable surface on the signature blue wall give employees a space for interaction and self-expression. The heart of the office is the communal café which provides viable work and meeting space as well as a fun get-away for employees. With a bold soffit, lighting and oversized communal table, the cafe encourages inspired thinking and flexible “on the spot” interaction between co-workers.

Avention

One Source for Attracting New Talent.

One of the primary goals of Fusion's renovation of Avention's existing office space, was to create an environment that supported the company's initiative for attracting new talent. This was accomplished through an exciting and bold palette of new finishes, as well as careful space planning efforts that encouraged collaboration and interaction between staff members.

The company was undergoing a re-branding effort concurrent with the design process, so the project served as a logical canvas on which to display new branding efforts and graphic material.

The project was also designed with flexibility in mind. With anticipated growth, Fusion utilized architectural wall systems in key transitional spaces so that department footprints could be adjusted and expanded as necessary.

As Avention’s objective was to attract new talent, Fusion needed to assure their space would accommodate the anticipated growth and would be viable and relevant into the future. The goal of encouraging collaboration and synergy within the staff was realized by the new space planning that was far more dynamic and efficient.

Pandora Media

The emergence of the digital media workplace!

Pandora Media’s new sales office in downtown Boston demonstrates our expertise in interior design and furniture and finish specification in a prototypical digital media workplace. Fusion provided complete design services for Pandora Media’s local office, including interior design that focused on a free and fluid work space.

The program mainly called for open work space, with more private meeting and call rooms for employee interactions or private conversations. By situating all the workstations on the interior perimeter of the space we allowed natural light to fill the office and stunning views of the city to be seen. One of the design features Fusion created is built in window seats located around the perimeter windows.

It was very important to the client to show city pride and portray concepts of music in a high-energy space designed to motivate the company’s sales team. One of the ways Fusion conveyed Boston’s rich musical history was in designing private meeting rooms, dubbed “sound studios”, that provide an escape from the music streaming throughout the open office space. The larger meeting rooms are named after Boston music venues such as Great Woods, The Garden and Fenway – some quintessential area landmarks.

NAI Hunneman

Cornering the Market.

Fusion was selected by Commercial Real Estate firm NAI Hunneman to re-envision their existing Boston headquarters. The goal was to create a newly energized space to impress visitors and clients, as well as to attract new, young talent.

A primary goal was to create additional meeting and collaborative space without greatly impacting existing office and workstation layout. Beyond this, bringing natural light into the space and maximizing the suite’s impressive views was an important element to the design. The resulting space includes an efficient yet impactful entry, a wide variety of conference rooms and a large open pantry/meeting space that fosters interaction and collaboration among staff.

Blackbaud

A bright dose of local color.

Fusion worked closely with Blackbaud to determine the best workplace strategy for their transition to a predominantly open space plan. The suite was designed to maximize atrium and exterior views and create an open and vibrant workspace for all employees. The centerpiece of the suite is the café. Its extensive water views and patio access, expansive island bar top, striking pendant fixtures and bold finishes come together to create a dramatic gathering space.

Blackbaud’s vision is to power an ecosystem of good that builds a better world. Fusion’s vision was to power their office ecosystem and therefore, employees, to build a better working environment. The modern, clean and airy layout is the perfect backdrop for bright colors and “Boston inspired” custom graphics, all echoing the fundamentals of Blackbaud’s corporate identity.

Adding a bit of color to their ‘green’ image was the perfect solution to helping this non-profit find their corporate voice and brand. Fusion is always able to find that perfect note to make your business sing.

Norman B. Leventhal Center at Boston Harbor Hotel

Situated in the iconic Boston Harbor Hotel, the Visitor’s Center was designed as a community space with multiple uses. The challenge was to program the space in a way that would be multi-functional. Movable partitions and flexible furniture arrangements allowed this space to be transformed from an open gathering area to a private meeting space in seconds.

The design inspiration was taken from the harbor itself, abstracted and modernized. The ceiling and walls are a nod to the undulating waves in the harbor; dynamic angles in the ceiling and walls transform typically flat surfaces into something that not only represents the water but also calls out the concept of the space itself, always moving and changing. A custom cut woven vinyl flooring showcases an outline of the Boston coastline and a custom glass backsplash takes cue from the sunlit water of the harbor itself.

Paradigm Properties

Peeling Back the Years

Fusion worked with Paradigm Properties, a commercial real estate developer and property management firm, to design their Boston office. Paradigm had recently purchased the building ― 101 Tremont ― and wanted to create a flexible, collaborative headquarters.

The building, located in a historic area adjacent to the Boston Common, was in need of some attention. After years of previous alterations, much of the historic appeal of the building was completely hidden. The existing drywall and dropped ceilings were peeled away to expose beautiful finished ceilings, brick and even exposed steel columns. The design and finishes were selected to compliment and highlight the integrity of these classic features.

Fusion’s design features a central café space directly off of the main entrance to act as a hub for all Paradigm's employees. The placement of this hub reflects the notion that Paradigm embraces and encourages employee collaboration ― a strong image of who they are as a company. This large space allows multiple meetings to happen simultaneously and is also used for office wide events as well as industry events hosted by Paradigm.

Veolia Energy North America

Creating Energy for an Energy Company.

Fusion’s design for Veolia Energy’s new headquarters is a fresh take on the modern office. Understanding Veolia’s complete range of environmental solutions, Fusion created the flexible work environment that was crucial to their work style and work-life. A communal kitchen and very distinctive boardroom and reception area are all key design features.

Offices and conference rooms are surrounded by floor to ceiling glass with a contemporary custom film design, filling the space with natural light.  Natural light is very conducive to an energy company bent on replenishing resources. Wood ceiling systems, natural finishes and a unique wood and resin board room wall create a warm yet modern atmosphere.

A large communal kitchen – the heart of many spaces - placed in a prime corner location was designed for company-wide gatherings.  This helps to foster the collaborative and congenial working environment.

Energy efficient lighting, daylight and other key sustainable measures allowed Veolia Energy North American Headquarters to achieve LEED Gold Certification in April 2014.

SThree

Quirky Blend of Boston and London.

SThree is a global staffing company with forty-one offices in fifteen different countries. Fusion worked closely with SThree to create a new space for their Boston Tech Sales team. The design was developed as a nod to the local culture; with everything from a larger than life Boston Terrier wall graphic in the locker room to the Boston skyline that wraps around the meeting room glass walls. It was also important for the client to recognize London as their headquarters. In the boardroom, teapot pendant lights were used as a connection to the company’s hometown. The result is an eclectic mix of Boston and London, designed specifically for the energetic, growing sales team.

Reward Gateway

Fusion partnered with Reward Gateway on their new Boston office, the first North American office for the London based consulting firm. We were tasked with translating London design into US standards – encompassing dimensions, codes, lighting standards and more. 

As experts in “Employee Engagement Consulting”, Reward Gateway wanted every aspect of their office to reflect their own mantra of “let’s make the world a better place to work.” This very progressive company wanted to make the space as inclusive and universal as possible – while also striving for LEED accreditation. 

Every detail from their London office was meticulously re-created within the 5,000 SF space with gorgeous views overlooking Boston Common. The open collaborative office environment is colorful and energetic and provides staff many different work environments such as individual study rooms, open lounge, modern work “booths” and even an Old English library room complete with Victorian wallpaper, tin ceiling and fireplace. A podcast recording studio brings in a very modern touch and adds the “Bostonian” flair to the “London” aura. 

Fusion worked closely with the project team, which included Avison Young, to coordinate specialty lighting, a custom “spa like” restroom and audio visual and kitchen amenities. The resulting space is a highly unique and dynamic office environment. Every last detail of the space is thoughtfully executed, highlighting Reward Gateway’s mission to  increase employee engagement through a nurturing and amenity rich workplace.

Takeda Pharmaceuticals

Fusion was engaged by Takeda Pharmaceuticals to renovate two existing office floors at their Cambridge headquarters, totaling 60,000 SF. Like other renovations on campus, a major design goal was to create a more open and collaborative office space. Perimeter offices and high panel workstations were replaced with interior spaces representing glass fronts and efficient yet minimal workstations, maximizing daylight and views.

From the onset, Fusion maintained a strong design concept that was inspired by Takeda's corporate philosophy, "Takeda-ism", and the art of origami to pull through Takeda’s Japanese heritage. The idea of creating space through folding, and a floor plan that fosters collaboration and sharing informed many design decisions ranging from lighting, wall treatments, fabrics and film.

The focal point of each floor is the central cafe space. Crafted from a series of faceted drywall and glass partitions wrapped in wood, the space is a dynamic gathering space with seating and breakout areas that extend into the open areas.

The end result is a bright, open, dynamic and free flowing layout that encourages collaboration and innovation in keeping with Takeda's mission and company values.

Zuora

When growing quickly, dexterity is crucial!

Fusions Interior design team was tasked with strategizing the most creative use of space in a well branded environment for Zuora’s new office located in the financial district of downtown Boston. Zuora is a fast- growing international tech company with a forward thinking and very energetic culture.  

Fusion’s creative use of the space was evident in many ways. Visitors are welcomed into a combined reception/café space with exposed ceiling and concrete floors. In the open work areas, benching stations allow the rapidly expanding team the flexibility of growth at their own pace. Call rooms and small meeting rooms accented with Zuora branded graphics and modern pendants give people privacy and quiet time when necessary.  

A particularly distinctive element of the space is the suspended floating sign that greets people and welcomes them into the Zuora office space as soon as they step off the elevator. This puts a smile on your face from the very first step!

451 D Street

The best blend of old and new.

Originally known as the Fargo Building, Meritage Properties enlisted Fusion Design Consultants Inc. to reposition 451D Street. The design included a lobby and cafe refresh and a new tenant amenity lounge.

It was important to the client to pay homage to the structure's roots in Boston and the buildings architectural style - Renaissance Revival. In addition to the redesigned lobby, our designers incorporated an abstract of South Boston’s coastline with an overlaid map of Boston’s Seaport dating back to 1942, when the building served as an Army induction facility during World War II. The interior wall graphic inside the lounge is an abstracted, custom colored photograph of the building’s facade.

The goal for this renovation was to keep the best of the old, incorporate great new elements, enhance the entire tenant experience and upgrade and refresh the building’s brand.

Blinker Branding

Hood Park

The goal for the lobby renovation at 500 Rutherford avenue was to provide a first impression that supports the rebranding efforts of the larger campus, as well as create a modern, inviting and warm gathering space for tenants and guests that echoes the iconic Hood brand.

Bold Hood brand colors highlight the entrance, stairwell and hallways leading to the café and other campus amenities. Blinker worked closely with ownership on finishing touches as well including a new wayfinding program and artwork. The custom window graphics designed by Blinker along with the custom wall graphics put the finishing touches on the Fitness center and amenity Lounge. The resulting space is a clean, modern and memorable gathering spot and point of entry for tenants and guests and has set the bar for both exterior and interior improvements campus-wide.

51 Sleeper Building Repositioning

When brokers representing 51 Sleeper Street – the iconic corner location at the gateway to the Seaport District – needed branding and image creativity, they came to Blinker Branding for masterful renderings that would sell the dream for possible future upgrades. Our idea was to redesign that entrance to highlight this extremely desirable location.

We created a new two-story focal wall to highlight the entry, consisting of aluminum panels and a bronze canopy with illuminated address lettering. Blinker created inspiration anchor tenant signage, an expansive roof deck rendering highlighting this potential tenant or building amenity along with compelling highlights of the adjacent park. The rendering showcased integrated imagery of the future park currently under construction in front of the property. In addition, we created a large-scale 3D art installation to add visual interest and a new sign band showcasing the potential for retail tenants and to better identify building parking.

This building enjoys unobstructed views of the channel and Boston skyline and Blinker showcased this luxury in a most influential way. This creativity offers a significant ‘value-add’ to area brokers and owners – as they are able to offer Blinker’s estimable services to their tenants.

Shady Grove Road Marketing Suite

Blinker Branding was tasked with creating a design package, including a logo, monument sign, amenities wayfinding graphics and environmental marketing suite graphics for the offices at 15245 Shady Grove Road. The building sits within the popular Washington D.C. Metro Area, which allows for easy access to the various attractions. The client hoped to portray this desirable location to future tenants.

The logo design derived from the building shape with two wings of the building that overlap in the center section. This logo and overlapping of colors style was used on all graphics throughout the building.

When you arrive at the second-floor marketing suite, guests are greeted by a large floor graphic containing the building's new logo, with directionals outlining points of interest and their approximate travel time from the building. Word cloud graphics on two main columns highlight restaurants, shops and conveniences in the area, while the exterior columns highlight each amenity space in the building that the tenants can look forward to utilizing.

The style of the logo and the finish selection for the business card was primarily driven by this historic icon. A modern san serif font and eye-catching accent edge paired with the traditional color palette of navy red and white allowed us to create a design that was modernized while remaining true to the traditional values of the company and its history.

Workable

CBRE contracted Fusion on behalf of their tenant Workable, who was moving from a smaller office in a brick-and-beam building in Fort Point, to a full floor of a high-rise in the Financial District. Fusion was tasked with designing a space that spoke to Workable’s brand, nodded to their European values, and inspired the employees of their fast-growing company.

Workable’s style resonated well with the industrial look that was inherent in their previous office. Fusion accomplished this with exposed concrete floors and open ceilings in the reception and large café area. The carpets selected for the suite are reminiscent of textiles, and the doors of offices and conference rooms are a light stained wood. The café area hosts a large custom island designed to function seamlessly for daily catered lunches. Fusion selected an eclectic collection of furniture pieces from a variety of vendors to create an industrial chic vibe in the café, collaborative areas and the executive offices. The 360-degree view of the city is enhanced by the dark colored exterior walls, and all enclosed rooms feature full glass fronts to maximize natural daylight throughout the space.

 As soon as you step off the elevator, you are surrounded by Workable blue and a collection of icons. Blinker, the graphic division of Fusion, designed custom wall graphics throughout the space that integrate Workable’s brand colors, logo, and icons used in their standard marketing materials. In the café, Blinker designed a custom calendar wall with chalkboard pieces for the Workable team to note holidays, birthdays, special events, and the daily lunch menu. The graphics throughout the space truly enhance the design by identifying the company as a brand and reinforcing their values.

Nexamp

Synergy Investments reached out to Fusion on behalf of their tenant, Nexamp, who was moving from a smaller 2 floor space in Liberty Square. Nexamp is a fast growing leader in the energy field providing clean solar-powered energy to communities along with significant savings to electricity costs. This design project provided an exciting new opportunity for the solar energy experts to create a space that was environmentally friendly, aligned with their company culture and provided a space they could grow into.

 Their new two floors on Summer Street began as a shell space with historic brick and beam left exposed. Fusion and Nexamp wanted to maintain and highlight the classic Boston architecture through the use of simplistic lighting, wood floors, glass, metal looking ceilings and angled walls to play off of the exterior shape of the building. As you enter the space, you are welcomed by a large pantry with a long island, a lounge and a gaming area. Your focus then moves to a refinished interconnecting stair with an industrial railing, a comfortable seating area and a coffee bar at the top, which esthetically connects the two floors. Nexamp wanted quieter areas for employees to work, but also envisioned fun lounges nearby for camaraderie, engagement and diversion. The remaining open office areas are simple yet modern with breakout areas for collaboration and team-work and phone booths for more quiet, undisturbed conversations. 

 Nexamp has been committed to bringing affordable clean energy to our communities for years and merits a productive, fun and engaging workspace to continue making a positive impact on our environment.

Jobcase

Jobcase’s mission is about connecting people, communities, and companies alike, empowering these groups to achieve their professional goals and giving a voice and support to a large part of our working world. From its inception, the office design was meant to reflect this idea of connection while accomplishing three main goals: capture the spirit of Jobcase through creative use of space and finishes, create collaborative and varying types of workspaces, and maintain a professional yet welcoming office design to customers and new talent.

The project includes a new team gathering café with a custom stage and kitchen, with a wood-look path that bends and cuts through the entire office, from the café, through the 6th, and finally to the 7th floor. The edges of the ceilings follow this wood path, breaking apart at points to reveal exposed painted deck and decorative fixtures. The custom graphics in the project are designed to showcase the faces, thoughts, and dreams of real-life Jobcase users, celebrating their relationship with Jobcase and the working world. The fluidity of architectural details, interactive graphic walls, flexible furniture, and physical architectural routes through the office connecting key spaces all come together to clearly represent what Jobcase stands for: the user.

Takeda Pharmaceuticals - 20 Sidney

Takeda Pharmaceutical's new office at 20 Sidney was formally a Shaw's grocery store that came with its own set of design challenges. These included a deep floor plate, a wall of no windows, a connecting parking garage and a conjoined hotel. Some of the benefits of the space were the open typical-shaped floor plan and the high ceilings.

 

Originally meant to be a flex office space for Takeda, this project evolved into a full office space for their Oncology department that expands across two floors. The first floor is designed to be a dedicated conference space for the campus that is flexible and accommodates multiple types of meetings and banquet style functions. A small café and catering room are included to accommodate and support larger events. The first floor is divided by an existing neighboring hotel into two separate sections - one that includes the conference center, café and catering room and the other consisting of the lobby and reception area.

 

The connecting staircase which brings you from the lobby to the second floor was added along with two large cafés on the second floor and multiple types of meeting and conference rooms. The remaining second-floor plan is dedicated to open office and workstations that accommodate 290 employees.

 

Both Takeda and Fusion wanted to create a unique design that considered the nature of the space and the existing conditions. The team decided that the best aesthetic approach should pursue an industrial look including dark flooring, reclaimed wood, exposed ceiling and an overall grey pallet.

       

During the test-fit planning phase, the second-floor office layout included two large circulation pathways connecting each public area in the space (the staircases, vestibules, and cafes). The large circulation pathways are defined by architectural wood elements and support wayfinding throughout the second floor as well as defining where the open offices would fit in the design. Takeda wanted an open floor plan, but to avoid having a sea of workstations, Fusion broke down the floor plate by adding groupings of phone, huddle and conference rooms. These groups help to break down the vastness of the second floor and make the space more manageable for employees.

   

Throughout the project, there was a large focus on the deep floor plate and making sure light would flow through the space. Fusion developed a 'hut' system with dropped VIA walls to create the illusion that light is passing through the office. Ceiling clouds also drop from the open ceiling to bring scale to the space and allow for acoustic separation from the exposed ceiling above. The result is a complete transformation from a supermarket to a modern, comfortable, and design-forward office space.

Optum Ventures

The Optum Ventures group prides themselves not only on their professionalism as a company but also on their passion and motivation as a team. Optum wanted their new office space to reflect both their diligent and collaborative nature as well as their welcoming and comfortable vibe. With plush furniture, textured materials and refined finishes, the Optum space greets teammates and guests alike with a bright freshness that is immediately apparent upon entry.

 

From the beginning stages, the office design has maintained the vision of having a choice of workspace, with multiple types of collaboration areas, conference rooms and breakout spaces. These areas, combined with the residential-style private offices and café, come together as a place for conducting productive business or enjoying casual leisure.

 

There are many opportunities for the Optum office to stand out through custom design details, including the floating wood-veneer baffles in open ceiling areas, the hot-rolled steel panels with custom signage, the unique millwork reception desk and the elegant cabinetry. Fusion, Optum Ventures, and the rest of the team brought different degrees of expertise, savvy and taste to the table to create a distinguished, unique and successful office design.

Skyhook

Fusion Design Consultants Inc. was engaged by Skyhook for the relocation of their office to a 4th floor 7,469 SF suite in the Seaport. Skyhook is a global location network that specializes in location technology and intelligence. 


A key goal of the project was to create a flexible and functional space that supports collaboration but also provides privacy. We accomplished this by creating an open office with three large conference rooms, private phone booths and flexible collaboration areas.

 

The project began as a shell space with exposed brick and beam that we incorporated into the final design to highlight and accentuate the classic Boston architecture.

 

Skyhook's new space features a large café and lounge area complete with a ping-pong table to encourage camaraderie and interaction among employees. The open office is covered with idea-paint walls accented with Skyhook branding, a mix of sit and stand workstations and large windows that let in plenty of natural light.

 

The result is the perfect mix of classic Boston architecture and modern design.

51 Sawyer Road

When entering the building, you encounter the lobby, where we removed the existing staircase that connected the 1st and 2nd floors. This helped to create an open and more spacious room. We gave the lobby a Southwestern, industrial vibe to create a warm and more inviting feel as opposed to the previous corporate look. The moss was added to the elevator walls to liven up with additional color and greenery into the space.

 

After walking through the lobby, you reach the full-service café. We decreased the size of the seating area in the café after conducting a survey that found the current size to be too large for the current traffic and therefore an inefficient use of space. The café, as well as the lobby, received upgraded seating to accommodate diverse needs ranging from meetings and remote work to eating lunch and socializing. At the back of the café, we created a TV niche and seating area enhanced with a lower in-look ceiling and a large wall graphic to evoke a boutique feel. We also completed a cosmetic refresh in the serving area adding new finishes, lighting, and updated millwork. The overall design has a mix of finishes that come together to create a modern, efficient and welcoming space.

Chenega

For this project in Concord, MA, the Fusion team worked alongside CBRE and Chenega Applied Solutions to deliver a fresh, modern office design for this specific end-user. The goal of the project was to provide an open, welcoming reception and café area, bookended by productive and efficient workspaces. The challenge was to meet a specific headcount via workstations while simultaneously providing pockets of collaboration and breakout space throughout.

 

The expansive café and presentation space include flexible touchdown areas, breakout booths and specialty lounge seating locations, including raised platforms with glass partitions for use as writable surfaces. The café is at the heart of the floor plate, tying the two open office wings together and bringing all users to one hub to meet, eat, or relax away from their desks. The café doubles as an all-hands meeting area and is outfitted with necessary presentation equipment for large groups, including speakers, video conferencing and screen share capabilities.

 

The glass fronts, wall graphics, and finishes create a cohesive design intent: to connect two seemingly-separated spaces by drawing them together in the center. The wood flooring stretches outward from this central café, widening at the two sides to form creative huddle areas at each. These pockets not only break up the clusters and rows of workstations but also function as productive work lounges for groups or individual focused work.

 

The most compelling and outstanding facet of this project is the presence of choice – end users of any type have multiple diverse areas to work quietly, meet with each other or simply take a break.

Hinckley Allen

Fusion Design Consultants, Inc. worked closely with Hinckley Allen on the re-stack and expansion of their existing Boston Headquarters. Inspired by the office’s amazing views of downtown Boston and the harbor, the newly finished space is bright, modern and airy while still maintaining the timeless and professional atmosphere of an established law firm.


A key goal of the project was increasing meeting space, which we accomplished by designing a more efficient layout. By restructuring the room sizes, the design now allows for increased conference seat count as well as additional informal meeting areas. A trio of spaces adjacent to reception was fit-out to be flexible, multi-use spaces that can transform from separate meeting rooms to one large meeting space or can be fully opened up for office social functions. 


Since the project was a mix of finish refresh and new construction, certain elements were determined to remain. Perhaps most dramatic was the finish refresh of the existing elevator lobby. We applied bright white paint to the existing dark woodwork, and with the introduction of new lighting and finishes, the lobby is now an elegant and welcoming first impression of Hinckley Allen’s timeless new office space.

Lobby Redesign


We redesigned this lobby with the intent of creating a more welcoming public space for the building's tenants. Our initial goal was to have interactive seating available for tenants to use as open meeting and gathering areas. To accomplish our goal, we split the lobby into three areas consisting of a formal conference room, informal meeting area, and a soft seating lounge.


A new feature wall along the existing staircase was designed to connect the first and second floor while also bringing attention to the double-height atrium space. Meeting and lounge areas are filled with feature lighting, decorative inset carpet, and a variety of furniture solutions that give the space a light and modern feel.
