Converse World Headquarters is located within Boston’s Lovejoy Wharf. The 10-story building offers 214,000 SF of office space along with a flagship retail store and Converse Rubber Tracks recording studio. The 3,500 SF retail store is Converse’s second location in Boston and sixth in the U.S. The project consisted of restoring the original Hoffman Building, located at 160 North Washington Street, as well as a vertical addition of two stories and mechanical penthouse. The design incorporates the building’s old brick walls with a new open design concept.
