Havas / Arnold Worldwide HQ Wins IIDA Best Large Office Award
We are proud to announce that the Sasaki design for the new Havas / Arnold Worldwide headquarters offices captured the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) New England's top award for Best Office Over 80,000 square feet. This is a tremendous honor and Sasaki offers congratulations to the design team for their display of design excellence and to the Havas / Arnold client team for their stewardship and investment in this project.
Principal in Charge for the project, Victor Vizgaitis, AIA, LEED® AP said of the win, "This project has been an incredible opportunity for our immensely talented team to work not only with a client that brought a tremendous vision and belief in the power of design to reimagine the workplace, but also on a project that will have a significant transformational power over the future of a core downtown Boston neighborhood. We're honored to have been part of it, and to have been recognized for the effort."
At the award ceremony last night, the judges praised the new offices for an integration of a cohesive vision and design scheme throughout. The judges further elaborated on their award decision, explaining that this was one office where each of them would truly like to work.
