A sneak peek into an exciting new project!
We can’t reveal the project just yet, but we can show you some existing conditions photos. It’s an adaptive reuse project to re-envision a dilapidated industrial building into a vibrant new typology…stay tuned!
The Monomoy Residence is nearing completion!
The building is fully enclosed, and the finishes are well underway. Paint has started, and bathroom finishes are being installed. The wood floors will be laid later this month, just before the millwork is installed. The landscape that was planted last fall will start to grow in with the spring, and we’re looking forward to the project being complete come early spring!

50 & 100 Boatswain’s Way are undergoing some major transformations!

Wainscot paneling is also being installed in the corridors of both buildings. These design details are already giving us a preview of how different these spaces will feel once completed!
