Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECT:
Modern furnishings retailer Room & Board has taken up residence at the recently completed 375 Newbury Street.
Designed by architecture and master planning firm The Architectural Team (TAT), the reconstruction of this four-story, 40,000-square-foot building on the corner of Newbury and Massachusetts Avenue required extensive rehab and structural stabilization, and meticulous recreation of the historic masonry facade, side by side with the introduction of a four-story addition enclosed in glass curtainwall.
The interior by Gensler's Minneapolis studio incorporates a large visible circulation stair that defines the arresting core. The two exterior patio spaces on the Newbury Street side embrace and welcome passersby.
