  • Interior Architects has designed the new offices of payment technology company Cayan located in Boston, Massachusetts.

    Cayan recently celebrated the completion of a global renovation of its Boston headquarters and Northern Ireland, United Kingdom offices. The company has embarked upon a radical redesign to reflect and amplify the company’s pivoting culture, personality and values – while also making their office “house” feel more like a “home” for employees, complete with living room-styled meeting spaces and vast employee café remodels.

    The resulting colorful and bright 42,000 square foot Boston and 22,500 square foot Belfast offices promote teamwork and collaboration while complimenting individual working styles. The build out of Cayan’s Boston location includes “watercooler meeting points” designed to mimic living room enclaves as well as high top tables and bar stools to encourage more eye-to-eye conversation in place of traditional conference room scenarios which can drain creativity.

    Other renovations include converting the previous tenant’s bank vaults into nap rooms and an online gaming area, where employees are encouraged to create across-the-pond comradery by playing one another in the occasional game or two. Included in the investment is also a commitment to improving infrastructure and office systems to not only enable collaboration, but enhance interoperability, reporting and performance.
