The Social Floor
The renovation of a 1955 Modernist house recasts its grand central space as the kitchen and dining room, the energetic hub of family activity.
The design began with a simple diagram of a zigzag translating diagonally across the large, open volume.
The studio can be experienced as a spacious single room volume for one or be transformed to accommodate social gatherings.
Before renovation, this Flat Iron District loft’s finest characteristic was also its major limitation. A north facing wall of three soaring, arched windows – while an asset – was the only source of natural light.
This new food concept store was to be located in a multi-story volume on Clarendon Street in Boston’s historic Back Bay.
