Soup Course It's a small town inside an expansive building. Bell Works in Holmdel, the repurposing of the Bell Labs facility that opened this spring, has been touted as a unique and genius indoor workspace. The building is 2 million square feet, but the intent today is to foster, within that space, an intimate, collaborative environment. There's a library (the Holmdel Library and Learning Center), a Montessori school and community yoga events.
