Boston Dynamics, a world leader in robotics engineering, needed a headquarters as innovative, open, and dynamic as their company culture.
Showcasing Robotic Breakthroughs
As creators, makers and engineers, the Boston Dynamics team members take pride in what they do. Undeniably, the company wanted the new space to showcase their innovative designs from the moment a visitor or employee entered the building. The design team took advantage of the building's unique sectional qualities, creating sight lines throughout the space and highlighting the robotics engineering lab, demo areas, and open spaces to exhibit their robotic achievements.
An Employee-centric Space
The employees are the backbone of Boston Dynamics' success, so it was imperative that their input and feedback was valued in the design process and the layouts and products were tailored to meet the needs of individual user groups. Employee health and well-being were also a high priority, which led to the inclusion of many people-centric spaces.
Expressing The Culture
To keep the innovators inspired, vibrant colors, industrial details, textures and products by local artisans were incorporated throughout the design of the space.These details helped to elevate their brand and the work environment while keeping their grit and company culture a distinct element of the office.
A Dynamic Future
Boston Dynamics is working towards cutting-edge mechanical designs, and it is essential that the new headquarters be designed to adapt to the ever-changing and rapidly growing industry without disrupting the day-to-day. The design team chose DIRTT's prefabricated construction solution to ensure moves, adjustments and changes can be done efficiently and effectively for the future of the engineering firm.
