Project Description

Zartoshty Loft Renovation

Boston, MA

The project consists of the renovation of a 2400 sq ft raw space into a residence for a young bachelor.

There is an explicit intention to erode the distinction between various program elements and certain basic architectural conditions. A limited palette of materials- each selected for their versatility- is used to create these conditions. The result is a series of interrelated spaces characterized by a “quiet dynamism”.

The primary materials are Brazilian walnut wood and white-cream travertine slabs. There are also extensive use different kinds of glass, including sand-blasted, clear, plate mirror and one-way mirrors. These “thin” materials are used in contrast to the heavier, more solid expression of the wood and stone.
