Westborough, MA – Maugel Architects recently announced Carruth Capital, LLC of Westborough selected the firm to reposition two commercial office properties located at 2400 Computer Drive in Westborough and 450 Bedford Street in Lexington. The renovations will include upgrades to the façades, lobbies, and building amenities.
The original building at 2400 Computer Drive had nondescript entrances and a small, dark lobby with a low ceiling that could not be raised due to utilities. Maugel transformed the facility by designing a new two-story lobby addition adding visual drama and natural light to the space. The new lobby features floor-to-ceiling curtain wall on three sides, a floating metal tile ceiling, pendant lighting, and a top cap with Alucabond and Kalwall panels lit with a color-changing LED light strip. The 80,000sf two-story R&D building is strategically located at the intersection of Route 9 and Route 495.
Maugel defined the main entry at 450 Bedford Street by using a contrasting wall tile and adding an outdoor seating amenity. The new patio, which replaced an unusable landscaped area, gives interest to the space and allows daylight into the interior. The lobby was completely gutted and redesigned.
Floor tile, wall tile, and two LED strip lights were carried from the exterior into the lobby to visually connect the two spaces.
Additional lobby features include a new high-end custom stainless steel stair rail, a dramatic three-story chandelier, and a modern textured wall covering. Strategically located at the intersection of Route 4 and Route 128, this first class office building is home to multiple small and mid-sized businesses.
