Bright Horizons US Headquarters

Location: Watertown, MA

The new corporate headquarters for this leading provider of work-site child care services is a renovation of an early 20th-century arsenal building. It communicates a “funky but frugal” feel in support of a fun and productive workplace. The space incorporates existing exposed brick walls and steel trusses, while added a mezzanine loft-like space and a dynamic set of new volumes within the larger space. In addition to nearly 200 employees, the building houses the corporate IT hub, two informal cafe areas, and conference facilities.
