    30,000 SF Fit-out
  • Location:
    Boston, MA

Safari Books Online, a trusted digital library provider, wanted an open and cohesive space for their Boston office located at Lafayette City Center in the Downtown Crossing neighborhood. Columbia was hired to fit-out the 30,000 sf office space which included a mostly open office plan with exposed ceilings and perimeter conference rooms.

Office areas feature workstations with motorized desktops, which allow employees to raise and lower individual work surfaces. Other areas include a game room with a variety of seating options, a large open kitchen and cafeteria space, as well as an acoustically sound video production room with a green screen and a separate control room. The cafeteria showcases polished concrete flooring and stadium seating with the capacity to accommodate the company’s all-hand’s meetings.
