Life Science Partners is a leading international biotech-financing firm based abroad. When the company expanded its offices to Cambridge to be close to the Kendall Biotech community, they wanted a modern office space that would project the image of a modern company. Located in a building with an industrial aesthetic comprised of exposed concrete ceilings and brick walls, Davis Square Architects (along with the building owner, Paradigm Properties), was able to create a clean and open space that accents the character of the building.

Concrete is left exposed except at the conference room, which is equipped with ceiling tiles and special lighting quintessential for teleconferencing. The simple yet functional plan yields generous offices that are full of light and large common spaces that allow for interaction, while large side-lights with simple metal frames create an optimally-lit work environment. The project’s short planning period and strict budget allowed Life Science Partners to quickly return to investing in human life sciences in a contemporary new space.
