Crimson Hexagon’s, a leading provider of social media analysis software, headquarters at 253 Summer Street is intended to promote collaboration. The predominantly open office plan with exposed ceilings has an interconnecting stair, reception area, kitchen/café, network computer room, and a mix of offices and conference rooms. Glass is incorporated liberally throughout to promote transparency, bring light in, and add to the open environment.

The post and beam building was constructed in 1902. Sand blasting was utilized to capture the character of the exposed wood and restore the natural color. A luxury vinyl was installed at the entry to mimic the look of a polished concrete floor. Other high-end finishes included custom hexagon shaped ACT clouds, built-in banquette seating with a stainless steel foot rail, and a radius millwork counter. MEP systems were reconfigured.
