The project presented here is a renovation
of a 1900 cultural landmark in Boston. The 15,000 square foot
office space was formerly home to the local horticultural
society. The project sought to maintain the splendor of the
near thirty foot high space and emphasize the character of
the original brickwork and vast clerestory skylights. The
tenant, a local publisher of numerous periodicals, was interested
in a fresh contemporary image set against the historic structure.
Interior design brought a warm palette reflected in the wall
colors, carpet selection, and system furniture selections.
The basic spatial needs were to accommodate a growing staff,
a periodical library, additional meeting rooms, and improved
mechanical systems and lighting throughout.
