EDELSTEIN & COMPANY

160 Federal Street, Boston, MA

25,000 SF

Design: Margulies Perruzzi Architects


PROJECT OVERVIEW

At the height of busy tax season, this major accounting firm needed to stay fully occupied and functional throughout the multi-million dollar renovation. In order to accomplish this, pre-construction and construction were completed in three phases, with strategic employee relocation, to minimize disruption to Edelstein staff. One phase involved a 7,000 SF expansion, including an employee café with custom barn doors, while the other two phases included two major renovations to existing spaces. Since Edelstein is a full-floor tenant, the base building elevator lobby and corridor became an integrated part of the renovation.


Unique Project Features:

  • Temporary relocation of Edelstein & Company staff allowed the firm to maintain normal business operations during all three, strategically planned phases of construction.

  • Although the project was completed in three phases, the office ultimately looked as if it underwent a single phase construction renovation due to the incredible synergy between the Edelstein & Company, the architect, the engineer and Corderman & Company team.

  • Previously used office furnishings were preserved and donated to The Furniture Trust to redistribute to non-profits and community schools. In total, 65,485 pounds of material were donated to 11 different local non-profits.

RENEGADE INVESTMENTS

177 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA

4,000 SF

Design: Visnick & Caulfield Associates


ADDRESS: 10 St. James Ave, Boston    SIZE: 65,000+ SF    Architect: Visnick & Caulfield Associates

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Client aspirations for a minimalist aesthetic that coincides with corporate functionality directed the construction of this private investment firm’s high-end office space. To achieve a minimalist look, the entire office upheld a strict white color scheme, including the white marble tile flooring that was installed throughout the space. Executive and associate interior offices were surrounded by floor to ceiling glass walls with discreet framing lines, both of which served to enhance natural light and convey understated sophistication. Other architectural elements that were built for Renegade’s office, which also featured a large conference room, open work station area and a new pantry, included millwork and wallcovering. 


Unique Project Features:

  • Construction was dictated by client goals to achieve a minimalist aesthetic that would coincide with corporate functionality. Architectural elements, for example, were set against an elegant white color scheme that included millwork, ceramic flooring and wallcovering. 

  • The reception area, which showcased the client’s art collection, was enhanced with custom brand signage.

  • The mechanical system and overhead lighting were incorporated into the original concrete structure of the building, which created a challenge with design and construction, particularly when it came to upgrading the old light fixtures, a building standard, to new, custom-designed fixtures.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

CONFIDENTIAL GROWTH EQUITY FIRM

One International Place, Boston, MA

10,000 SF

Design: Visnick & Caulfield Associates


PROJECT OVERVIEW

While many financial services offices are built around an emphasis on privacy, this confidential growth equity firm’s first priority in a new office was its communal and collaborative areas. These areas were constructed near the entrance with the intention of creating a purposeful split between public and private spaces. Moreover, a lounge adjacent to an open contemporary café serves clients and staff for both intimate and larger get-togethers. White tile contrasted with dark wood flooring, curved LED lighting strips, and floor-to-ceiling glass office fronts elevate the financial firm’s reputation as a trendy, collaborate workplace. 


Unique Project Features:

  • Dark millwork was installed around the floor-to-ceiling glass office fronts, the latter of which is intended to provide more natural lighting throughout the office and a sense of transparency. 

  • Communal areas were a priority and constructed near the office entrance to purposefully create a divide between public and private spaces.
