Hewitt Associates Eastern Regional Center
Hewitt Associates, an international employee benefits consulting firm, is situated on a 15-acre landscaped estate overlooking Long Island Sound. Known as Rockledge, it features a landmark early twentieth-century manor which was previously restored and adapted for office, dining and conference use. Hewitt required a significant expansion of the original house to meet the needs of its East Coast operations while maintaining the integrity of the estate.
The design of the building addition, interiors, and furniture systems is an efficient layout of private offices and shared workspaces for 150 employees.
A subdued palette of granite and glass relates the new building to the materials and motifs of the old. The result is a contemporary response to the Tudor style of the mansion and the pastoral qualities of the landscape.
