A New Alumni Center Celebrating Connections
Northeastern Alumni Center
Architectural, interior, and graphic design for university alumni center and office renovation
Cambridge Seven Associates designed the first facility devoted to alumni events for Northeastern University's 88-year-old Alumni Association. The Alumni Center is located on the top floor of the restored Columbus Place, an historic 6-story structure that once housed a tobacco company. The premier venue for gatherings, lectures and social activities is the Alumni Pavilion, a corner space offering a majestic view of the Boston skyline. The Center connects a multi-use dining and meeting space, home to the new C7A-designed Faculty Club, which takes advantage of the top floor's column-free, tobacco-drying space with its distinctive saw-toothed ceiling to create an elegant dining experience and the new President's office, also designed by C7A. The Faculty Club features a full-service kitchen, while an adjacent informal lounge provides a full-service bar, online E-Bar, and a relaxing “living room” feel.
