As part of a major period of growth, MIT Federal Credit Union purchased a building in Lexington and hired Dyer Brown to design their three-floor office space and analyze future expansion within the building.
Many enclosed rooms were moved to the core, and variation in ceiling panes maximize light, lending a modern, airy feel. A large super cafe adjoining two atrium spaces act as both a gathering area and digital showcase of the credit union’s newly refreshed branding. The main reception features a large, welcoming coffee bar and breakout space that can support larger meetings and gatherings. Various soft seating areas were included in the design offering space for team members to collaborate. The project also included a new data center and associated emergency generator, as well as a fireproof vault for records storage and special provisions for ‘virtual teller’ stations within the open office space.
