Integrity Lab is a research and innovation data-driven company, whose mission is to create intelligent technology promoting organizational and ethical business cultures. The company sought a small, flexible office to welcome remote workers back to the office for a hybrid working model based in Harvard Square. Merge composed the space to support several different types of work ranging from solo personal work at desks, informal small huddles, up to larger collaborative conference spaces.
The 800 sf adaptive reuse consists of two meeting spaces, one large and one small, flanking an open office area and kitchenette. The meeting rooms are wrapped in a pleated two-tone acoustic wall, adding sonic separation between spaces while layering color and texture into the space. An informal gathering space peels away from the kitchenette counter, providing an informal space for socializing and small group collaboration. The two formal meeting rooms create a pinch point in the floor plan, allowing two distinct zones of open office; a more quiet and secluded desk space, as well as more social working area towards the entry.
