Simon-Kucher sought out Fusion to design their office space at their new location in downtown Boston. The office is in the heart of Boston and has expansive 360-degree views of the city. An important goal of this project was to design a space with bold personality and that reflects their company culture. Understanding that Simon-Kucher values collaboration and team spirit, we created a large café to encourage camaraderie and act as a central gathering place for employees.
The design aesthetic of the office works as an important factor in attracting, retaining and engaging new talent. Simon-Kucher was drawn to a warm, neutral color palette with industrial elements inspired by their other offices around the world. We added color and energy into the design with accents such as wallcoverings in the huddle rooms and blue barstools in the cafe. They also prefer the look of clean lines and dark accents throughout the office which we accomplished by using a dark grey paint on the ceilings and installing glass wall systems with black frames.
Simon-Kucher wanted their office to create a sense of belonging among their employees. We accomplished this goal by dividing the large floor plate into four neighborhoods each consisting of open-office style workstations, private offices, meeting rooms and a floating huddle room. We installed video conferencing capabilities in all meeting and conference rooms to support communication between all their offices around the world.
