Real Estate Website Curbed Checks In On Bell Works
Curbed writer Spencer Peterson recently checked in on the redevelopment of the former Bell Lab’s facility down in Holmdel, NJ, now aptly named Bell Works. Peterson checked in specifically to get a feel for how architect Alexander Gorlin would rework some of the brilliant architecture that the facility has to offer, which was originally constructed by famed architect Eero Saarinen. In describing the plans for the new “metroburb” that Ralph Zucker and Somerset Development plan to create, Peterson notes that some of the research Zucker and Gorlin for the project such as flying to Torino, Italy for inspiration from the redesigned Lingotto Fiat factory which is now “redesigned as a civic-minded multi-use complex”. In regards to Somerset Development’s efforts to have the structure stay true to its original design and intention, Zucker is quoted as saying, “from the conversation pit to the light-filled hallways and atrium to the mirrored glass-clad exterior, we are staying true to Saarinen’s vision for a collaborative space that’s conducive to wandering and interacting.”
