H3 Biomedicine Headquarters
DiMella Shaffer completed a renovation to the headquarters of H3 Biomedicine at 300 Technology Square in Cambridge, MA. The 12,000 sf renovation included a complete reimagining of the office environment to better reflect the culture, work flow and how staff interact with one another. Extensive interviews and analysis during the programming phase were followed by a robust design process. This led to a complete rethinking of how the space could be inhabited and a corresponding rethinking of the architecture. A variety of types of interaction spaces have been incorporated to compliment not just how the staff work today, but also how they can work in future. A rethinking of how the Kitchen/Café could be utilized throughout the day resulted in a multi-centered space that can be used for meetings, events, independent work as well as act at the heart and hub of the office.
