The District Burlington is a 54-acre office complex in Burlington MA, part of the Route 128 high tech corridor. Previously called the New England Executive Park, the development was built in the 1960s through the 1980s, and the facilities showed their age. National Development, the new owner, reposition the complex by adding shopping, dining, and lifestyle options to create a modern office park with urban amenities and an emphasis on employee well-being.
In that spirit, Poulin + Morris created a comprehensive approach to presenting information with dimensionality; nothing is flat or conventional. “Our goal for The District Burlington was to create a program that clearly declares ‘This is a modern workplace,’” says principal Richard Poulin. As you approach the gateway, the name appears in three-foot-high letterforms that appear integrated with flanking stone walls.
