Peek into a Pretty Tech Start-Up’s Pad Before it Becomes a Park

For mobile app SCVNGR it’s all about “location, location, location”.  When it comes to their namesake mobile app, that means checking in from your mobile device and earning points for completing challenges at your current location. For the offices of the start-up itself, that means an imminent move from their Cambridge, Massachusetts offices (pictured below) to a new digs on the other side of the Charles River (For SVNGR challenges near the Charles…).

When the 90 employees move to their new office in Boston, they’ll leave behind a beautifully designed office space in Cambridge’s  Kendall Square neighborhood.  The light-filled space, notable for its clean lines, and sleek, modern design, won a Business Week / Architectural Record award for workspace design in 2003.

Once the office is uninhabited, plans call for the building to be razed to make room for a park. So before this beautiful space disappears, we wanted to honor it by giving you a sneak peak into the coveted but soon-to-be concrete space.

The space was designed in part by current Google Ventures partner Rich Miner when he was employed by the telecom firm Orange, the original inhabitant of the artfully architectured space.
