Akamai Technologies Global Headquarters

Cambridge, Massachusetts
United States

In an effort to consolidate several local offices into single integrated a global headquarters, this worldwide leading technology company sought to develop a space which evokes their forward-thinking brand and personality. Drawing inspiration from the concept of network connectivity, Akamai Headquarters features a design which begins in the lobby with lines of light that run throughout the 19-story building along a continuous mile-long path that guides employees to all of the building’s collaborative spaces. These long runs of trimless LED linear slots are meticulously integrated, seamlessly transitioning across various ceiling and wall materials with fully illuminated angled intersections.

This high-concept design is both visually stunning and energy efficient, designed to both LEED v4 and WELL v2 Gold certification levels.
