Boston, MA (North End)

Located at the intersection of Commercial St and Hull St, this feasiblity study looked at creating approximately 50 residential units.

The site has unique challenges - the north portion facing the active harbor is juxatoped greatly by the south facing a very traditional North End neighborhood. The design of these facades play off of this context: where materials evolve from contemporary glass-filled sections to the traditional brick and fenestrated facade found in the North End.
