CBT designed a complex eleven-phase renovation for Bright Horizon’s 70,000-square-foot corporate campus in Watertown, Massachusetts to create a more efficient and collegial workspace that reflects the company’s culture and forward-looking office planning concepts. The renovations also provide space for future expansion as the company continues to succeed and grow.
The design included a central entry to serve as the hub for all of Bright Horizon’s activities. The space allows for impromptu meetings, social gatherings or all office events. A connection was made from the main hub to the upper level and is known as the mini-hub, and is utilized to facilitate communication and enable employee interaction.
The renovated space includes workspaces for Bright Horizons’ alternative workplace style of ‘Distributed Work.’ With approximately 80% of headquarter employees work less than 5 days in the office – this dramatically cuts down on the needs for personal work stations. The space has been designed with both assigned and unassigned work stations to provide flexibility and reduce the amount of unused desk space.
