Harvard Mail Services retained Davis Square Architects to transform a lightless basement warehouse into a new central mail service facility. The design includes office spaces, a lunchroom, kitchen, computerized mail handling rooms, accessible ramp and entrance, as well as an outdoor patio. New floor-to-ceiling windows that were cut into the existing concrete-bearing wall provide natural light, while bright colors and interesting geometries make the space exciting and welcoming.
