Arrowstreet originally served as the architect for this Kendall Square biotech building, which opened about five years ago. Our client, BioMed, then approached us about creating a lobby that would differentiate the building amongst the Cambridge lab market. The active, dynamic shared space now encourages tenant interaction and collaboration. A custom perforated metal ceiling visually guides tenants and visitors from the entrance to an elegant recessed sitting area, while a large video display featuring a vibrant underwater scene brings color and activity to the space. The addition of café-style dining creates a convenient and casual gathering space for tenants.
