Avigilon, Canadian provider of video surveillance software and equipment and security solutions, opened a new research and development centre in Somerville, located near Boston’s Technology Hub in 2016. The building is situated amidst an award-winning mixed-use area on the Mystic River and offers the occupants great views of the waterfront. Nine separate garden areas have been realised and planted with different grasses and perennials giving the terraces a special charm and a light and breezy ambience. Built-on-site seatwalls capped with float-ing cedar slats create natural gathering spaces on the roof, and integrated light-ing provides an inviting ambience day or night.
