This project in Boston’s historic North End neighborhood is a marriage between old and new. The existing five story commercial brick building features an updated facade and interior, focusing on contemporary contextuality. The building is being modernized to include generous light and air, exposed building elements, and an invigorated sidewalk edge. Giving an activated street front back to the neighborhood was a primary goal that is accomplished with the use of industrial storefront expressions, new windows and signage along the facades, and an artistic entrance lighting display. The new occupants will be afforded generous views toward the Zakim Bridge and Bulfinch Triangle, and their floor-through offices and work spaces are built out with the most contemporary materials. All existing building elements that remain are being refreshed for twenty first century use.
