The Brickyard Office Park is located near Harvard University in Cambridge, originally used as a pottery manufacturing mill building in the 1930s. It has brick exterior walls and sandblasted high heavy timber ceilings. The renovation adds exciting interior spaces with lofts and skylights while maintaining its character.

Part of the Cambridge Brick industry, it had a kiln running the length of the building and clay pits in the rear.
