Located in the historic 238 Main Street building in Cambridge’s Kendall Square, the new space for Bluerock Therapeutics features a modern workspace, as well as labs housed in the new addition. A long corridor, visible from the building’s main lobby, features text in supergraphics of the company’s name and functions, illuminated by suspended asymmetric uplights. Visitors can find the reception desk at the front of a large egg-shaped wood feature element, surrounded by a glowing mesh ceiling and ample ‘Bluerock blue’-colored ceilings. Luminous tubes create a dynamic pattern above the mesh ceiling of the café, developing into a regular rhythm of rows above workstations in the open office areas. Clusters of simple decorative pendants create loci for seating and collaboration. In a simple yet effective move, structural columns are bound with surface-mounted rings of light, creating a contemporary take on the classical column capital.
