Ware Malcomb completes construction on Amicus Therapeutics’ Princeton office

Newark-based Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, on Tuesday said construction is complete on a new office location for Amicus Therapeutics at 47 Hulfish St. in downtown Princeton.

Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the new office, encompassing 27,200 square feet on the fourth and fifth floors of the building, located in the Palmer Square district just a block from Princeton University.

The Princeton location serves as the global headquarters for Amicus, a patient-dedicated biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing and delivering high-quality medicines for people living with rare diseases.

“We focused on creating a space that built upon Princeton’s community feel, as well as addressing Amicus’ desire for flexible workspaces and convenient amenities. Our team designed an interior to not only meet the employees’ functional needs, but also enrich their overall experience, focusing on creating a sense of belonging and inspiration,” Marlyn Zucosky, regional director, Ware Malcomb, said.

With a goal of catering to various work styles and promoting collaboration, creativity and well-being, the team incorporated agile work environments throughout the design. Enclosed meeting rooms double as offices and larger meeting rooms have movable walls to provide flexibility to the preferred use. Ceilings were extended beyond enclosed spaces to the adjacent collaboration areas, which maximized square footage usage and created a sense of openness and unity.

The team also incorporated branded storytelling graphics into the boardroom area, unassigned mobile workstations and collaboration areas. With a purpose of creating moments of inspiration, the branding and graphic elements highlight the patient’s journey and underscore the interconnectedness between corporate objectives and the human element. The entire space also integrates elements of biophilia and neurodiversity, along with sustainable practices to enhance connectivity to nature and contribute to a healthier indoor environment.

General contracting services for the project were provided by Sweetwater Construction Corp.
