Johnston, RI  Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA) of Boston has been selected to provide interior architectural design services to Dassault Systèmes at its 90,000sf, 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 Systèmes team on an innovative layout, design, and interior finishes for the new space.

MPA is currently renovating the entire 338,600sf Northwoods for Hobbs Brook Management LLC.

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 Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE applications; an employee “hub” that will include a lounge and café for staff; teleconferencing capabilities; and an outdoor soccer field and basketball court. Employees also will 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 Systèmes SIMULIA is expected to be complete in the fall of 2014.
