by Brianna Crandall — January 20, 2017 — Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), a Boston-based architectural and interior design firm, announced that it is designing a new Boston office for national general practice law firm, Rubin and Rudman LLP. MPA is providing space planning and interior design services for Rubin and Rudman’s new 30,000 sq. ft. office at 53 State Street in Boston.
Founded almost a century ago, Rubin and Rudman is a full-service law firm with nearly 100 attorneys in Boston and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC. Previously located on Boston’s Rowes Wharf, Rubin and Rudman sought a more efficient and improved space that would be able to accommodate the firm’s recent, as well as anticipated, growth.
MPA’s design maximizes natural light in the space and uses glass walls to promote transparency and a strong visual connection between private offices and workstations. The reception area announces a more modern, yet still classic, office, and ushers visitors into the adjacent conference center featuring a suite of conference rooms with servery. The project includes a linear law library and multifunction training center/café.
Laura Long, executive director at Rubin and Rudman, noted:
It was important to us that our new space provides a comfortable work environment for our attorneys and employees, as well as a welcoming and accommodating space for our clients and guests. MPA understands our vision for this new space and our desire for a polished, yet functional design. We look forward to working with them on the design of our new Boston office.
Rubin and Rudman plans to occupy its new Boston office space in September 2017. RDK Engineers is providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services, and Cushman & Wakefield is providing OPM services under the direction of Elizabeth Spath.
