To differentiate BioMed Realty’s biotech research facility within the Cambridge lab market, Arrowstreet designed a renovation of an underutilized space to create a new lobby. 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. 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.
