Back Bay Penthouse was conceived as a ‘home base’ for a couple and their extended family. The design team faced the challenge of incorporating the clients’ desire for a clean, minimal space into the historic context of the Back Bay. The subsequent residence was borne from a curated selection of natural, carefully-crafted elements that work together to create a modern identity amidst the tradition and formality of its surroundings.

The project’s concept is a celebration of American industrial design and supports the work of emerging artists and craftspeople. This focus inspired the use of unassuming organic materials and layered, natural textures, such as woven paper carpets and clay walls. A level of humility exists in the forms throughout the penthouse, honoring the client’s wish for a timeless, meditative space.

Unique metalwork, such as the custom-built stair, celebrates the client’s background in developing innovative technology for detailed metal fabrication. Similarly, black steel windows punctuate the home’s street view, framing Boston’s characteristic red brickwork. Outside, the penthouse includes multiple terraces with 360-degree views.
