Award-Winning
StarNet Commercial Flooring Cooperative – Annual Design Competition Winner

Davis Square Architects turned a Civil War munitions depot into the headquarters of an expanding childcare corporation. This award-winning facility flouts conventional notions of corporate culture through its vibrant interplay of color, form, and unusual materials. Working collaboratively with the client, we met the technical and design challenges posed by the wide open interior spaces of Watertown Arsenal, carving out offices, work stations, formal and informal meeting rooms — even a mail distribution facility. Together, they express the dynamic spirit of this enterprising young company.
