The new NaviNet offices occupy 65,000 square feet in three floors in a historic building in Boston's Leather District. The design combined historic elements of the building with modern features, colors, textures and finishes.
“The design allows for lines of sight to the outdoors from virtually all areas of the open office space and defines traffic areas with ceiling components comprised of wood, metal, and lighting details. Those details are strategically repeated throughout the space to create a cohesive design,” Vision3 said in a release announcing the award.
