Boston – Margulies Perruzzi (MP), a Boston architectural and interior design firm, announced the completion of a new office for Rubin and Rudman LLP, a national general practice law firm with offices in Boston, Washington, D.C., and Cape Cod.
MP provided space planning and interior design services for the law firm’s new 30,000sf office at 53 State Street, Boston.
Structure Tone served as construction manager for the project, and RDK Engineers provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services. Cushman & Wakefield provided OPM services under the direction of Elizabeth Spath.
Previously located on Boston’s Rowes Wharf, Rubin and Rudman sought an efficient and flexible office space that is more reflective of their clients’ workspaces and provides a greater degree of openness without sacrificing confidentiality.
MP’s design features same-size private offices that reduce the need for future construction due to promotions, and that can also be converted to meeting rooms for greater flexibility.
Enclosed perimeter spaces are designed with all-glass prefabricated office fronts to maximize daylight penetration as well as promote transparency and a strong visual connection between private offices and workstations. The reception area announces a more modern yet still classic office design, and ushers visitors into the adjacent conference center offering a suite of conference rooms with a coffee bar.
Wanting to retain the law library, MP’s design integrates shelving throughout the circulation areas to incorporate the library into the new space, eliminating the need for a designated room.
Workstations provide operational flexibility for the shifting ratio of support staff to attorneys, and meeting and collaboration areas are equipped with the latest technology. The new staff lounge also doubles as a training space.
“For nearly a century, Rubin and Rudman attorneys have helped shape the laws of changing times. Today, we strive to remain cutting edge in an ever-changing legal environment, and the design of our new office reflects this mission,” said Laura Long, executive director at Rubin and Rudman. “MP understood our vision and created an efficient, technology-enhanced office that provides flexibility to accommodate future growth. Our modern work environment offers a welcoming and comfortable space where we are proud to welcome clients and guests.”
