Completed in September of 2011, MPA designed a 8,900 square foot office for SV Life Sciences Advisers LLC, a leading international life sciences venture capital firm, at their newest office in downtown Boston.
The design intent for the project was twofold: to create an open and contemporary aesthetic that fosters teamwork while incorporating the latest teleconferencing capabilities, and to design a central gathering place where their associates can meet casually to maintain their culture of collegial cooperation.
The space features offices with views of the Custom House Tower and Boston Harbor, workstations, a boardroom with videoconferencing capabilities, and a central kitchen and social space. The neutral color palette is accented by custom natural cherry wood millwork with glass on and around each office door. To provide more light and maintain openness throughout the space, partial glass walls were used in the kitchen and workstations.
