Commissioned by: Feinberg Hanson LLP
Scope: 8,000 sf headquarters relocation for law firm.
Charles Rose Architects relocated Feinberg-Hanson offices from Wellesley to a new downtown Boston location. We evaluated three Boston locations before settling on a space on Boylston Street, across from the newly renovated Prudential Tower, and with striking views to the south and east, as well as commanding views to the north of the Charles River and Cambridge. Our client desired a contemporary office space that would balance vibrancy and sophistication.
Working within the existing 8,000 sf space, our design features floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a strategic use of color to transform an outdated space into a modern law office focused on efficiency and collaboration. In response to their desire to work collaboratively, we created informal meeting spaces and a central café that serves as the “living room” and social hub of the office. The café features a communal table, lounge seating, and a colorful graphic mural, designed specifically for the space. The program includes a reception area, large board room, two conference rooms, 12 partner offices, four paralegal stations, and dedicated storage and filing rooms. In addition to the use of glass, other finishes and materials include oak-veneer casework, porcelain floor tiles, and quartzite countertops.
