Boston, MA Law firm Foley Hoag LLP is embarking on a redesign of its offices at 155 Seaport Blvd. Tenants in the Seaport District since 2002, the firm will remain in the neighborhood through 2037 with a new 15-year lease.
Elkus Manfredi Architects has been engaged to help the firm continue to thrive in its workspace with a design that incorporates technology, client-focused meeting places, and more daylight across all workplaces.
To help Foley Hoag achieve its vision, Elkus Manfredi will draw upon its signature cross-industry design approach, combining features of such diverse project types as hospitality, residential, and hi-tech design with its extensive experience in designing for large law practices. The new design will provide an inspiring and timeless workplace where employees are able to work comfortably and efficiently. Adjacencies will be carefully considered to establish the most effective use of the space; technology will be seamlessly integrated to support varied modes of working; and access to daylight will be carefully balanced with the need for privacy. When complete, the new office will occupy 165,000 s/f on five floors.
“Foley Hoag is a true leader in its field. They work with the best and brightest in the innovation economy of Boston and around the world,” said Elizabeth Lowrey, principal and director of interior architecture at Elkus Manfredi. “We’re excited to do our part to support today’s innovators and the entrepreneurial spirit of Boston by helping Foley Hoag support its bright, hard-working, and attentive staff. Foley Hoag’s leaders are wonderful, thoughtful collaborators, and together we are creating a dynamic, modern, timeless, and elegant workplace that will support their important work in service of their clients for many, many years to come.”
