Back in late January, clypd moved from the Cambridge Innovation Center to our new home at 212 Elm Street in Davis Square, Somerville. We’ve put in a lot of love, time, and effort into creating a perfect space that will meet all of our needs (and more).
In building out the new clypd office, our biggest priority was to make sure that the space fostered creativity, openness, and collaboration. And next, to create a space that was beautifully designed, functional, and enjoyable (a big thanks to Haley McLane). The end result is a place that feels like a home – whether we’re working hard or letting loose.
We wanted to make sure that everyone’s working styles and needs were met, so we built custom desks – traditional and standing desks. We also have plenty of nooks and crannies where people can take a breather, or meet informally with each other.
And when it’s time to relax, we also have plenty of options. Head to the game room to play foosball or battle it out on the clypcade (our own multicade), hang out in the lounge with blacklights, or watch a movie in the screening room. We’ve got plenty of beer, coffee, and tea connoisseurs on the team, so naturally, we have the choice of three rotating beers on tap, a wine bar, iced coffee and tea on tap, and a wall of loose-leaf teas.
A space that cultivates collaboration is important to clypd. Internally, we have weekly Lunch and Learns and Beers and Demos. Externally, we love hosting local events. So far, we’ve held a couple of local meetups, and this Sunday, we’re hosting a free livestream of TedxSomerville.
Finally, custom lighting fixtures, upcycled and hand-made furniture, hand-painted murals, signs, and vintage cameras and film reels bring the space together and make our home feel truly unique.
