Analysis Group New York
Analysis Group New York’s new 35,000-square-foot office space introduces a serene work environment and urban oasis, located in the heart of Times Square’s colorful chaos. Upon arrival, an illuminated trellis ceiling welcomes entrants warmly with light wood walls and a terrazzo tile floor, establishing a light and airy atmosphere. A variety of light woods, reflective glass, porcelain terrazzo tile, neutral colors, and textures throughout the space bring to life a warm and peaceful retreat from buzzing urban surroundings. To encourage more foot traffic and socialization, the strategic location of the large café offers views to the Times Square side, capturing energy from the street below to inspire activity in designated social spaces.
The transformative master plan and design for Allston-Brighton’s 176 Lincoln Street reimagines a long-underused 5.2-acre industrial site into a dynamic three-building mixed-use urban village at an energizing human scale. Envisioned as a hub for innovation industries, city dwellers, and community, 176 Lincoln brings fresh momentum to the area’s current city building. Combining multi-family residences, artist live/workspaces, retail, restaurants, and leading-edge lab/R+D environments within generous open space, this live/work/play destination is within easy reach of Cambridge’s cultural, educational, and research centers and Boston‘s core.
CBT designed Hogan Lovells’ new office space in Downtown Boston and wanted the space to reflect Hogan Lovell’s global direction and qualities. The office space consists of one full floor and one partial floor on the 20th and 21st floors at 125 High Street. The two-floor space with an interconnecting stair total 41,000 square feet. The firm’s new location contains a variety of workspaces, meeting and conference rooms, and cafe.
Curry College-Science and Integrated Learning Commons
Offering a state-of-the-art space featuring new classrooms, labs, offices, and 24/7 group study spaces, the 36,000-square-foot Science and Integrated Learning Commons has been thoughtfully designed to encourage collaborative, multidisciplinary learning by engaging students and professors in an educational environment that extends seamlessly beyond formal classes.
CBT is working in collaboration with Danish design firm Schmidt Hammer Lassen on the revitalization of the Seaport World Trade Center on Boston’s famed Commonwealth Pier. The multi-year project will transform and rejuvenate the 705,000-square-foot building and pier with new amenities for greater public access to the waterfront, vibrant retail offerings, first-class event spaces, and a unique and flexible workplace for employees of Fidelity Investments, who will occupy 100% of the revitalized office space.
The Grand Orlando Resort at Celebration
This transformation of a vintage 1990s budget hotel, now under new ownership, is as day to night. And, this is not just a metaphor: natural light now brightens reimagined common areas; windows frame lush greenery. Once a dark rabbit-warren, the guest lounge is light and spacious, calmly and crisply welcoming. A comprehensive hospitality reinvention, the design stripped away all vestiges of its former low-cost hotel self, developing a brand-new palette and guest experience through distinctive design. The scope instructed complete revitalization: façade refresh, porte-cochere, and pool deck redesign, and re-envisioning common areas with modern aesthetics, technology, and smartly-appointed spaces—all to create a warm welcome for today’s hybrid traveler.
