RSC Corporate Headquarters

Woburn, MA

[ THE CHALLENGE ] Transform a center city warehouse into a corporate headquarters and packing facility for a pharmaceutical services company.

[ THE RESPONSE ] A new steel framed floor was inserted within the masonry volume to accommodate separate production and office areas. The new glass and steel entry pavilion forms a light-filled reception area that reaches out to the adjacent street, while the new cladding and windows give the building a renewed urban presence. The work preserves a piece of history, accommodates 21st century technologies and helps revitalize downtown.
