Berklee Online, the online school of Berklee College of Music, delivers access to Berklee’s acclaimed curriculum from anywhere in the world. Located in Boston’s historic Back Bay, Berklee’s new office features an expansion of their previous layout to accommodate the growth of the institution while maintaining one centralized location. The new space was built around an open concept to encourage collaboration internally and with other parts of the online school. Berklee also recognized the importance of providing environmental flexibility; private spaces, including closed offices, phone and huddle rooms, were constructed to balance the open work areas.   

Unique Project Features:

  • Creating a flexible office, the conference room was built with a movable glass partition that could easily expand or close depending on the target work environment. 

  • The construction of a highly rated STC video shoot room, with a separate master video editing room and IT support spaces, offers Berklee employees the opportunity to develop online content in-house.

  • The expansion of Berklee Online’s previous office was structured to accommodate the institution’s growth while maintaining one centralized office location.
