This three unit condominium in East Boston was developed, designed, and built in under one year. Zephyr was closely involved with the owner in all stages, and successfully ensured the final project was delivered on time, on budget, and in keeping with the original design intent. The neighborhood surrounding 9 Jeffries, East Boston, is a transitional place with a diverse collection of buildings. The new building draws on materiality throughout the area, and presents a quiet, contemporary face to its neighbors.
A primary goal of the design brief was to implant an architecture into this urban fabric that points to the future with clarity, elegance, and modesty, unifying the vision forward. The completed building has been well received, and has already spurred a wave of change in the area that is rekindling the pride of place this tight knit community has.
