Designing large contemporary buildings with a nod to the neighborhood’s history required careful consideration and collaboration
Spanning between Congress Street and Summer Street in Boston, Massachusetts, 350 and 400 Summer Street are two 16-story lab and office buildings built over a 3-level parking garage. Designed to meet workplace market demand, these buildings will contribute to the bustling Seaport district.
To design the buildings as contextual and respectful of their location adjacent to the Fort Point neighborhood, WS Development engaged Morris Adjmi Architects as design architect in collaboration with Stantec as the architect of record for schematic design through construction. In addition to design and construction coordination, we designed and detailed the interior core and provided layout and coordination of the parking garage and critical back of house spaces. Working together, the base building team and our highway team designed signage and lighting structures for the project elements spanning over adjacent Massachusetts Department of Transportation roadways.
The project design includes richly textured brick façades and arch-top windows as a contemporary interpretation of the area’s industrial heritage and brick masonry craftsmanship tradition. Ultimately, this development replaces a large parking lot with attractive context sensitive buildings and a large public amenity space.
