CONCEPT:

Landor in Boston, Massachusetts is a commercial graphic design and branding firm located within the Seaport District. Seaport is a neighborhood that is currently modernizing so the design of this office reflects that, but also has accents that reference the historical federal and colonial design throughout most Boston. The design incorporates the use of wood and brick accents, as well as columns and the concept of symmetry to depict these styles throughout the office. The Landor office has a variety of spaces within the office that give the employees different levels of acoustical and visual privacy, and also offers multiple collaboration options. The design lets natural daylight is let into the space through large windows and with the location being near the water, it gives employees calming views of the Boston Harbor.
