Crossing the Charles: Part 2
03.09.15 / Leslie DelleFave, AIA, LEED AP
This spring ARC will be saying goodbye to Cambridge and some significant architectural neighbors in Kresge Chapel, Baker Hall & the Media Lab and getting more familiar with Trinity Church, the Boston Public Library and the Hancock Tower as we make our way across the Charles to our new home at 501 Boylston Street, the former New England Mutual Life Insurance building. The Back Bay brings with it a fresh sense of energy (and lots of great lunch options!) as we plant new roots in an architecturally rich urban environment. Our in-house design team has created an exciting space that is one part familiar, one part innovative, and in all ways representative of our design values and culture. Many of the spaces will be multi-functional and flexible, aligning with our aspirations of how we expect to work in the future. The majority of the office is open, much like our current space, reinforcing and enhancing our collaborative design approach.
501 Boylston Street Exterior
Open Office Area Along Clarendon Street
Construction at our new home is moving along rapidly. The partitions have been framed and all the ductwork, plumbing and electrical services are currently being installed. Miles and miles of network and tel/data cabling are being pulled to provide us with top of the line AV capabilities in the conference rooms and fancy new workstations. The space offers great views of our new neighborhood with Boylston Street to the south, Clarendon Street to the west and Newbury Street to the north.
Inner Corridor Space
Stay tuned for more construction updates as the work progresses. #crossingthecharles
