Bright Horizons

Watertown, Massachusetts

Bright Horizons, the leading global provider of education and child care, engaged Gensler Boston to design its new home office. This connected workplace unifies teams under one roof – creating a vibrant home for global talent and a hub of service supporting its expanding business. Bright Horizons' new headquarters are designed to enhance collaboration, support culture, and encourage innovation. A range of space types creates a highly inclusive work environment that supports the needs of a diverse workforce.

With a focus on health and wellbeing, the space provides wellness rooms, mother's rooms, and multipurpose spaces for personal rejuvenation. A central coffee bar and work cafe offer a variety of indoor and outdoor seating options for collaboration and informal connections. In addition to an inspiring new workplace, the campus also integrates a new flagship Child Care Innovation Center to support the needs of home office parents.
