This project is a corporate headquarters. It is built by the Architecture3s architect who based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. For this building, the RDK Engineers is the MEP/ FP Engineers. This great headquarter is covers an area for about 38.000 square feet and it was constructed in 2010. For more information about this building, just give a simple attention below!
This great corporate headquarter project which located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA is for HubSpot which is a transformation for about 38,000 square foot mill building space. While HubSpot itself is an inbound marketing company which is provides marketing software and an advice to the businesses and it is allowing them to be found in the internet and of course grow their business. HubSpot has been moving from their bare bones start-up space into their space located in a 38,000 square foot series of interconnected mill buildings in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
In the development of their new space, HubSpot itself has the three defining issues which are very important to them. The first, they do not want to lose to their entrepreneurial start-up aesthetic. It is mean that they feel will be a turn off for those working in-house. It is important to them to still be seen as a company on the rise, it because of their great technology and the intelligence of them are rather than an “established” company.
The second, they wanted to engage and be respectful of the post and beam mill structure aesthetic. Yet simultaneously have a contemporary palette of the materials which is speaking to their avant grade place in the technology industry. While the third, as is the case with most young entrepreneurial clients in the earlier stages of their development, but their budget is so limited.
The inexpensive materials for this HubSpot is comes together in an unique composition which respect the budget of its, yet yields a spatially rich environment which is not reliant on the expensive materials and finishes for its success. To create the aesthetic signature, strategically and judiciously is used. For the example the floor to the ceiling is glazing and it is offsetting those costs with the simple painted drywall, the laminate surface and the inexpensive linear strip fluorescent fixtures back-lighting a cellular plastic panel which is dropped into an ordinary suspended ceiling grid. Iconically it is introducing the clients branding logo and the colors into the design tailor the space. The misalignment of the floors from the mill building is seized as an opportunity to the design in enhanced the thresholds which are informed the user that they are moving from one building to another. Realized as the simple painted drywall tubes, these thresholds is establishes the sense of the place within the design and the work to celebrate the circulation through the spaces.
To soften the space in juxtaposition to the minimal and machined surface, the materials like transparent curtains and the birch stalks are used. The curtain itself can provide an enhanced acoustic quality at the lobby which also serves as a break out area for the adjacent multi-purpose room and the conference room. As well, the curtains captures the light in differently than the other surfaces, it is provides a detail which is unexpected and simple, inexpensive is devices to allow the user to fine tune the space to allow views into the conference room spaces or make them fell more private. The birch stalks are used similarly and its provides a contrast with a warm situation, unique and beautiful to walk by or form an edge at the impromptu meeting locations off the circulation.
