Boston Properties, Lexington, MA
Boston Properties selected Maugel to design dramatic façade improvements and core upgrades to the existing 30,000sf research & development building. Prior to the 17 Hartwell project, the firms collaborated on several tenant and infrastructure improvement projects at Bay Colony. The new design transformed the 1960’s building into a contemporary aesthetic with large expanses of glass and a stunning new corner entrance addition.
The new entry features a structured soaring glass box framed by a metal waterfall element, giving height to the existing roof line. A second complementary glass feature was added to the south corner of the building to provide corner views from a conference room. The combination of new glass elements allows an abundance of natural light into the space and provides generous views to the outdoors.
