Design Solutions - Summer 2017 - 16

The company focuses
its resources on developing
medicines and devices that
can produce positive realworld outcomes for patients
and healthcare providers. 
Novartis launched a
six-year project in 2010 to
construct two buildings with
a combined total of 1,100,000
square feet to create a central
space to both the campus
and to the neighborhood.
The new building seeks to
engage the university and
the community's academic
capital for its research
mission.
Called in to design
and build the project
were architect of record,
Cannon Design, Boston,
Massachusetts; Maya Lin
Studio, New York, New
York, with Bill Bialosky
Architects, New York, New
York, responsible for Building
#608; and Toshiko Mori
Architects, New York, New
York, responsible for Building
#613. Architectural woodwork
for the two buildings was
fabricated by Mark Richey
Woodworking, an AWI
member firm located in
Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Building 608
This building covers
800,000 square feet. The
heart of the building is shared
workspaces and communal
spaces that encourage
scientists to gather. Materials
and acoustic properties allow
people to work quietly and
out in the open. "Privacy
is managed with layers of
light, stone glass and wood,"
points out Bill Bialosky.

Inspirational spaces are
filled with light and natural
materials to create a visually
and emotionally comfortable
environment. Styling cues
are clean minimalistic details
that rely upon the beauty of
the natural materials which
"tie nicely the pursuit of
medicines to their biological
origins," he explains. Bialosky
also reports that there was a
strong desire to connect the
Cambridge Novartis campus
with the Basel, Switzerland
campus where there is
a definitely modernistic
aesthetic

Elm is featured on flush
door details, glass partition
trim, and curved doors at the
auditorium. Project Manager
John Hickey of Mark Richey
Woodworking notes that
Topakustik paneling is used in
the auditorium and the atrium.
ELM

In this building, Elm was
the wood of choice for the
vertical surfaces, selected
Bialosky notes, for its color
rendition, grain structure and
sustainability story. White
Oak is used on the floors
for its neutral appearance,
economy/sustainability and
its compatibility with the Elm.
