The Forsyth Institute, Cambridge, MA / Headquarters Relocation
Forsyth’s move from its historic Fenway location to high-tech Kendall Square provided an opportunity to create a fresh identity for the institution. Spread out over four floors, Forsyth’s new headquarters includes expansive laboratory and support space, a vivarium, multiple conference rooms, offices, and two research dental clinics. The new offices reinforce Forsyth’s goal to foster collaboration by providing areas for meeting and interaction including a central circulation stair linking the three research floors. A panel of iPads in the lobby presents interactive exhibits explaining Forsyth’s rich history as leaders in dental research, making the early connections between oral and overall health. ARC carefully coordinated the reuse of existing elements to develop a cost-efficient solution while creating an entirely new planning concept and design aesthetic.
