Located at 160 North Washington Street in Boston is Converse's impressive 10-story headquarters. The 214,000-square-foot office space currently calls home to 400 employees, boasting enough room for double that amount. Overall, the building is quite spacious, as it was built with creativity and collaboration in mind. There are few offices and cubicles located throughout, but rather numerous larger conference style rooms that encourage employee interaction. To further promote commingling, several of these spaces have no electrical outlets, so laptops and other devices will not be a distraction and meetings can thus be completed more quickly.
The union acts as a central communal space located on the second floor, featuring various living rooms and an employee coffee shop that offers free coffee. Converse workers can also take advantage of an in-house gym that provides various classes, workout equipment and locker rooms. Each floor is connected by a centrally-located wooden, spiral staircase, while the entire building has only two elevators, again encouraging personal interaction and movement.
Also nestled in the gigantic headquarters is Converse's relatively new Rubber Tracks recording studio. In addition to a room for laying down tracks, the space also highlights a live concert area. Below the stage location is the brand's retail store, noting men's and women's footwear and apparel.
