Making Space for Makers

Making Space for Makers

Within our re/fresh design investigations, we’ve focused on how to repurpose every available space in our current office environment. Every space has the opportunity to bring innovation, value, and foster creative entrepreneurial talent. In today’s industry, nothing is more invaluable to an architecture office than a true makerspace – a place dedicated to building, creating ideas, and generating knowledge.

Insights from our Space Utilization Study

Insights from our Space Utilization Study

Intuition tells us that we are not occupying all of our workstations all of the time.  Client meetings, site visits, meetings with consultants and vendors.  We are a mobile workforce with many people out of the office for various lengths of time. Our space utilization study was an exercise to quantify this intuition and determine if there is an opportunity to share workspace.

How Boston Does Renovations

How Boston Does Renovations
