Maugel Designs New Foliage Campus at Northwest Park

Posted by Robin Peters, Marketing Director on Wed, Mar 05 , 2014

Nearly 20 years ago, Maugel Architects designed Foliage Software's first office building located in Burlington's Northwest Park.  The Foliage building was renowned for its iconic arched entryway proudly displaying the Foliage name and logo. Foliage has now relocated and expanded into two buildings located at 10 and 20 North Road within the Park. Maugel designed a mini-campus for Foliage by adding distinctive sloped-glass corners and entryways to 20 North Road to match the design of 10 North Road, which had previously been designed by Maugel. The two matching facades now present a vehicular and pedestrian gateway to the amenity spaces between the buildings. The recently renovated 20 North Road structure features a new 25-feet-high lobby with clerestory windows--creating an instant iconic form in its own right.

Trends in Corporate Interior Design: Maugel Featured in WBJ

Posted by Robin Peters, Marketing Director on Mon, Jan 06 , 2014
The following is an excerpt from the Worcester Business Journal's article: Boost Productivity with Updates to Office Design, authored by Emily Micucci
 

Retailers have known it for decades: incorporating the brand into interior design has a powerful marketing impact. Starbucks, McDonalds, Target and Apple are examples of retailers that have perfected the art of creating atmosphere that's unmistakably their own.

But branding indoor spaces has become important to companies outside the retail realm, too. Central Massachusetts designers, marketers and business owners say it's no longer enough to slap a logo on your product and website. The company identity has to be a part of the spaces where the work is being done each day, too.

"Nobody really wants an office space that people don't recognize as being some place special," said Brent Maugel, president and owner of Harvard-based Maugel Architects.

Maugel works regularly with firms that want to spruce up the interiors of offices that were last refinished in a bygone area. Today, businesses want to trade square footage for collaborative spaces, and find design elements — from paint colors to lighting and greenery — that are anything but ordinary.

Commercial Property Owners Renovate Their Way to Occupancy

Posted by Brent Maugel, President on Fri, Oct 25 , 2013

The current inventory of existing, vacant commercial real estate presents an opportunity for many investors. Due to the lack of market demand in recent years, many investors are diversifying their portfolios and selling properties at very attractive values. The attractive pricing and recent, subtle uptick in demand for commercial office space and light manufacturing has led buyers to be cautiously optimistic about investing in older buildings. Many savvy investors are able to acquire properties at price points that allow for dramatic façade and infrastructure improvements—while still preserving attractive lease rates.

The one story, 9,000 square foot building accommodates six retail/restaurant tenants.

Working within a triangular shaped site located at the intersection of Middlesex Turnpike and Terrace Hall Avenue, proved to be a unique design challenge.

I first met Peter when he hired me as a junior draftsmen at the age of 25--back in the days of mechanical pencils, rapidograph pens, mylars, sepias and ammonia blueprint machines. (Items that befuddle spell check and most of my current employees...)  Peter was the most charming, gentle and fair employer that I have ever had. His smile always expressed a whimsical mischievousness that veiled his disarming intellect and candor. He was just one of those subtly strong leaders whose tools of the trade included humility, wit and humor.

Church Design: Creating Places of Worship Within Commercial Spaces

Posted by Dan Barton, Director of Design on Mon, Apr 08 , 2013

Today, we are seeing many churches creating their worship facilities within commercial buildings. Large commercial structures have ample square footage and open space that can easily be reconfigured. Commercial properties also tend to have sufficient parking and landscape, as well as an at-grade pathway to a gracious entrance. With an abundance of vacant office buildings across the country and a growing need for cost-effective solutions for houses of worship, repurposing office space for churches makes a great deal of sense. And with a creative selection of materials and design features, we believe there is great potential in helping religious organizations to achieve their desired image and character in any setting.
