PillPack Office by Haley Mclane, Somerville – Massachusetts

December 14th, 2016 by retail design blog


Haley Mclane has designed the new offices of pharmaceutical company PillPack, located in Somerville, Massachusetts. We wanted to move away from the sterile, abrasive aesthetic that is so common in startups. We completely gutted the existing build out, exposed the ceiling and polished the terrazzo concrete floors. One of the design challenges was lighting – the existing windows were small and widely spaced. Our solution was to focus on earth tones, muted colors, and warm lighting to compliment the dark hues.


Rather than adding loud pops of color, we focused on incorporating varieties of texture in the space. A Venetian plaster wall lies behind our vintage reception desk. Heavy plaid curtains add color to the custom made glass walls surrounding the conference rooms, while also providing privacy during meetings.


We also incorporated locally sourced reclaimed wood in the kitchen. Vintage pieces round out the space – including a bar sourced from a Lower East Side establishment built in the 1930’s, and Stephen Kenn sofas in the lounge made from vintage WWII military tent fabric.
