Boston University - 580 Commonwealth Avenue

Boston, Massachusetts

This 115,769sf new construction project involved demolishing a 5 story structure in Kenmore Square and replacing it with an 11-story building which addresses Boston University’s growing need for on-campus housing for their graduate student population.  The design solution includes a shared café space and 220 studio apartments. Many of the units have bay windows which not only help to reduce the scale of the building but also take advantage of spectacular views of the Boston skyline and Charles River. The bay windows and the use of brick, precast concrete, and composite metal panels enable this modern building to fit comfortably within the context of an urban campus in a historic city.
