TRIA

TRIA

TRIA more than doubled its office space in Boston’s The Innovation and Design Building (IDB) to accommodate its 50+ employees and to leave room for future new hires. TRIA has taken 11,700 SF of additional space adjacent to its existing office on the third floor to support its continued growth. The expansion was designed in-house, and features stripped back industrial features, such as structural beams and a large loading door. The striking pillars that run throughout the IDB became a functional focal point by wrapping them in shelving to house TRIA’s extensive materials library, encouraging cross-office collaboration and interaction. Large windows throughout allow light to penetrate the entire office, most notably on the “bridge”, a connection reaching an adjacent building, where lounge furniture breaks up the office space. All desks are sit-to-stand, and the office design allows for flexible seating in addition to standard permanent seating, offering employees a variety of options to best serve their workload.
