Athens Residences

This eight unit residential building is located in a rapidly developing neighborhood in South Boston. The adjacent lots are zoned such that the new structures can extend to the lot line leaving only one short face of the building suitable for windows. This condition results in two major constraints: how to allow an adequate amount of light into the building and how to create a structure that works as a stand alone building without investing too much in a facade that will mostly likely be concealed in the near future. This led to the innovative introduction of sculptural light wells that allow light into the building both now and after any future construction.
