Genzyme Center

Behnisch, Behnisch and Partner Architects

Genzyme Corporation, one of the world’s foremost biotechnology companies, is dedicated to improving the lives of patients suffering from difficult diseases. Relying on a core set of values – innovation, transparency, collaboration and the entrepreneurial spirit – Genzyme has grown since 1981 from a small start-up to a global company with more than 10,000 employees in locations spanning the globe.

In 2000, as the company approached its 20th anniversary, Genzyme decided that the time was right to build a new corporate headquarters. The company needed a new hub for its increasingly global workforce, and it wanted a signature building that would stand as a reflection of its core values and a symbol of its established position. Three years later, the company opened the doors to Genzyme Center.

Designed by the award-winning German architectural firm Behnisch, Behnisch and Partner, Genzyme Center is a twelve-story, 350,000 square foot office building that combines innovative design and cutting-edge technology to create an exciting, healthy and productive workplace for more than 900 Genzyme employees. With a striking all-glass exterior and a soaring internal atrium, the building is the anchor of an urban revitalization project in the Kendall Square neighborhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is one of the most environmentally responsible office buildings ever built in the United States.
