Margulies Perruzzi Architects Designs New Office Space for Propel Marketing

BOSTON – June 17, 2013 – Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), one of Boston’s most innovative architectural and interior design firms, announced today that it recently completed the design of 28,000 square feet of office space for Propel Marketing, an online marketing company based in Quincy, Mass.

The new headquarters, located on Myrtle Street in Quincy, offers up a larger space for Propel’s growing staff, as well as its internal and client-facing training programs.

Shaped like a four-leaf clover, the office has four wings with individual low-walled workstations for employees. During the initial planning stages, Propel was in the process of refreshing its branding materials and color scheme. MPA collaborated with Propel on a design that would feature a different pop of color in each one of the four wings.  One wall per wing is painted in a different hue associated with the brand. The furniture and flooring were kept to muted tones.

The new workspace also features a large training center with moveable partitions that can be used to create three separate conference rooms. A portion of the training center known as the library features Propel’s brand colors in original artwork painted by employees on small canvases. Five additional meeting rooms were also added to the new office, along with a glass-fronted boardroom that provides sweeping views of the Boston skyline. MPA installed new lighting and reduced the number of previous fixtures by about a third, creating an opportunity for energy savings.

“Part of our mission at Propel is to move companies forward,” said General Manager Chris Eck. “MPA took a raw space and moved it towards a meaningful, collaborative, and well-planned workplace design that serves our company’s expanding needs.”

LCD screens can be found in both the training center and on the walls of each wing, showcasing Propel’s work products. And, in a nod to the company’s local roots, the screens are mixed in with black and white photography of various Boston landmarks. Members of the staff were also asked to take photos of their favorite area restaurants – which now hang in the company’s break room.

The project team included property manager Cushman & Wakefield, general contractor Commodore Builders, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing providers WB Engineers, and audiovisual suppliers GateHouse Media.
