Tour Sonos’ New Workplace in Boston


Sonos engaged IA to support their global workplace design as they relocated from Cambridge, Massachusetts to a 115,000-square-foot space in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. The resulting design is a carefully calibrated experience which supports Sonos’ brand, innovation, and mission through a flexible and scalable solution for global delivery.

    • The green wall and interstitial stair open into a central café space. As the heart of the facility, the café provides seating, technology, food and beverage service, and New England-style finishes to connect the global Sonos brand to the regional vernacular of Boston.
    • Open work stations are stitched together via intimate “living rooms” and micro kitchens where teams can meet for work or breaks in a variety of postures.

  • Garages on the second level provide meeting and respite areas for hardware and software technicians.
