Project Update, National Parks of Boston Headquarters
We have just completed schematic design for the National Parks of Boston (NPB) Headquarters which will house administration and staff from the five NPB Directorates. The project will be a gut renovation of a three-story 60,000SF historic building in the Charlestown Navy Yard and will follow guidelines developed in our Workplace Recommendation Report completed for NPB in 2019. This project will bring all NPB Directorates together in one location for the first time with a design that encourages communication and collaboration through a range of spaces that include private conference rooms, studio rooms for interactive work, open flexible work zones, and casual lounge areas. The design incorporates objects and images from the NPB archives and will use reclaimed material from a nearby building slated for demolition to make way for the Gateway Center, another NPB project we are working on.
