Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), one of Boston's most innovative architectural and interior design firms, announced today that it has been selected to provide interior architectural design services to Dassault Systemes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, at its 90,000 square foot, Class A office space at Northwoods, a new office park development at 1301 Atwood Avenue in Johnston, R.I.
In the coming months, MPA's workplace strategists and designers will collaborate with the Dassault Systemes team on an innovative layout, design, and interior finishes for the new space. MPA is currently renovating the entire 338,600 square foot Northwoods for Hobbs Brook Management LLC.
"This new office park in Johnston, R.I. is an example of our commitment to develop a stronger regional presence throughout the United States in order to be close to our growing customer base," said Bruno Latchague, managing director, Dassault Systemes North America. "This location is SIMULIA's Global Research & Development Center, home to the brightest minds in 3D simulation. With MPA's help, our goal is to create a space conducive to teamwork to help spark new ideas that can lead to even more business innovation."
With a goal of achieving LEED certification for the entire building, MPA will incorporate sustainable materials wherever possible. Other plans include a large client conference center for training on Dassault Systemes 3DEXPERIENCE applications; an employee "hub" that will include a lounge and cafe for staff; teleconferencing capabilities; and an outdoor soccer field and basketball court. Dassault Systemes employees will also enjoy the benefits of a new full-service fitness center at Northwoods that will include showers and locker rooms in addition to the office park's new cafeteria.
The Northwoods project for Hobbs Brook Management and Dassault Systemes SIMULIA is expected to be complete in the fall of 2014.
