Forward-Thinking Design in Cambridge Crossing

Warm and welcoming, the lobby of 222 Jacobs Street, MAWD's successful Boston life sciences project, features a striking double-height green wall, as well as heavily textured materials and custom lighting. Seating groups activate the lobby and provide useful spaces for impromptu meetings over coffee or typing out one last email before running out the door. A convenient and contemporary bike room features oversized black and white graphics with pops of color and accounts for the local community’s affinity for clean transportation.

For 222 Jacobs Street at DivcoWest’s Cambridge Crossing innovation community in Greater Boston, we created a hospitality-inspired lobby and amenity program that aligned with the development’s slogan: People first. Buildings second.

The project is a prime example of next-gen life sciences space, tailored to cutting-edge companies and their tech-native, globally conscious employees. The fresh, modern aesthetic is designed to also appeal to potential collaborative partners and top young talent.

“The organic elements are accented with soft, textured materials and pops of color to provide a sense of warmth and liveliness, in keeping with our ‘Live, Move, Work, Play’ approach – spaces designed for modern, integrated lifestyles," says Elliot March, co-founder of MAWD.

The building is 100% leased and is the home of the Philips North American Innovation Center and is also occupied by Cerevel Therapeutics. With Wired Score, LEED, and WELL certifications, 222 Jacobs is built to the highest of standards and is designed for today’s leading innovation companies.
