Alongside Gensler, Bala was commissioned to design the Celtics' new headquarters at The Hub on Causeway, a mixed-use development with direct connection to TD Garden. Located steps from home court, the project presented a unique opportunity to design a space that incorporates the energy of the game and embodies the team’s iconic brand.
The new workplace creates a “home” for each staff member with custom-designed workstations and offices, complemented by a variety of open and enclosed focus, collaboration, creative and meeting spaces. The balance of space types allows for enhanced productivity, flexibility, and connection among staff. Special attention was paid to ensure the workspace creates equity in both the physical and virtual working environment by integrating flexible video meeting rooms, dedicated desks that serve as home base at the office, and various alternate environments to support focus and collaboration.
