What if we could make the unbuildable buildable, By utilizing an extreme section?

We worked with Joy Street Design on this East Boston 6-unit project, which bridges two streets at very different elevations – this gives the project not only amazing city views, but also appropriately scaled facades and massing on each street. We took inspiration from the surrounding context – the ubiquitous triple deckers – but with an eye on how the views, outdoor living spaces, and solar orientation could riff on that familiar form. With double-height living spaces, off-street parking, and lots of south-facing glazing, this project shows that, when confronted with an extreme site, creativity and a focus on constructability yield great results.

This project is under construction; more images coming soon.
