East Boston is a place that is filled with a diversity of architectural styles. 85 Everett is an existing three story structure on a modest block of similar structures. Zephyr reimagined the building as three condominiums with a modernized facade. Each floor-through unit contains modern finishes, appliances, and spatial arrangements, with generous windows and contemporary attitude. Structural upgrades were made to the building to extend its life for many years to come, and a beautiful roof deck was included with the penthouse unit. The street presentation is kept within the East Boston vernacular, but updated with a rich color palate, warm wood materiality, and a textural approach that subtly differentiates the building and adds interest to the street edge. Upon entry, residents are greeted with a handsome new portico that brings an element of safety and security to the house and its immediate surroundings.
