Fusion Design Consultants worked closely with Hinckley Allen on the renovation/restack 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 increased meeting space. By making rooms more efficient sizes, the design allows for increased conference seat count as well as additional informal meeting areas. A trio of spaces adjacent to reception were fit out to be a flexible, multi-use space. The rooms can be kept as separate meeting rooms, reconfigured as one large meeting space, or fully opened for social functions.
Similarly, the central café was moved to a corner of the building, providing a beautiful and inviting destination for both lunch and one-on-one meetings. The café, among other spaces, is fitted with custom graphics that echo their corporate logo and speak to their roster of offices across New England.
Because 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. Bright white paint was applied to existing dark woodwork, and with the introduction of new lighting and finishes, the lobby is now an elegant and fitting first impression of Hinckley Allen’s timeless new office space.
