Located in the shadow of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Sidney Research Campus is a study in new thinking.
The three-building, 340,000-square-foot campus was formerly a dated-looking home to one large life sciences tenant. But a recent metamorphosis has transformed it into modern office and laboratory space for a variety of smaller biotech companies. To support the tenants’ breakthrough work, the firm Arrowstreet designed the common areas inside and out to be sleek and sophisticated. In one building, that includes using “visual images” lined with iLight Plexineon White fixtures. Installed so they are offset against the ceilings, the fixtures create a 3D effect in the main floor elevator lobby, as well outside the elevators on each of the building’s four floors.
