Studio Becky Carter has designed the new offices of pay-per-mile insurance company Metromile, located in Boston, Massachusetts. In a marriage of New England’s rich, historic aesthetic and Silicon Valley’s innovative energy, Metromile’s 5500 square foot Boston office unites two cultural counterparts with vibrant and playful sophistication.
After unearthing the brick walls and hardwood floors of the 19th century building, Studio Becky Carter introduced warmth and softness to the space with smart and thoughtful finishes and furniture. In keeping with the design of Metromile’s San Francisco headquarters, clever nods to car parts and the driving experience create an inspired and innovative office space.
Glass walls patterned with window tint, a large custom art piece designed to mimic a model car kit, and a sweeping fabric landscape inspired by road trips divide and color the space while eclectic accessories sourced in Cambridge antique shops bring play and local charm.
