Scope and content:
This project series documents Phase 2A of work completed for Hasbro Headquarters in Pawtucket, Rhode Island from 1991-1992. The office identified the project number as 9104.
This project consisted of interior work for part of the company's headquarters and was the second in a series of projects that the firm would complete for the headquarters. The 300,000 square foot building was predominantly one-storey and located on the block between Saratoga, Grand, London and Newport Avenues. The three projects were known as Main Street, Phase 2A and Phase 2B. Phase 1 was completed in 1986 by Barton Myers Associates with Shirley Blumberg as partner-in-charge. These subsequent projects by KPMB were also headed by Shirley Blumberg and continued the initial style she had established in Phase 1. These projects saw the conversion of a historic brick and masonry mill into the company's new offices. The office structure was inspired by the layout of a Greek town, with a main street running through it. This phase included office areas for the engineering soft toys department, the creative services department, human resources and legal services, as well as a fabric library, fabric storage room, conference rooms, and a presentation theatre with a curved backdrop. Planning for the next phase and an east wing also began during this time.
The project is recorded through drawings and a project model dating from 1988-1992. These are mostly original drawings and include sketches, plans, sections, elevations, perspectives, details, and some construction drawings. Many of the drawings focus on the office furniture.
