Cubist Biopharmaceuticals’ new chemistry and biology labs in Lexington, MA represent the continued growth to support their research to treat life-threatening infections. The new 110,000 SF LEED Silver wing establishes a strong architectural marker on campus. The vertical tower features an atrium that establishes order and community. Linking the existing south building labs and the 21st century lab expansion to the north, this branded feature establishes a strong sense of community with the creation of highly collaborative environments at each level allowing scientists the opportunity for casual encounters at refresh zones as well as the ability to exchange ideas in huddle rooms. The vertical iconic spine features a cafe, conference centers and research facilities. A beautifully landscaped terrace extends employee amenities outdoors and compliments the experience on campus.
