JEFFERSON MIXED-USE COURTYARD
LOCATION: Jefferson Avenue between Marlborough Street and Philip Street.
This project was designed as a linear courtyard to draw people off Jefferson Avenue and into the neighborhood. The street wall on Jefferson is restored with the mixed-use building connecting to the existing bank. The bank is being repurposed as commercial space with rooftop gardens for residents and the community. In the middle of the commercial spaces is a pedestrian underpass that leads onto a porch that provides seating and helps service the
commercial spaces. The porch steps down into the central space where there is a variety of public and private seating. An objective of this project was to provide private spaces that can create intimate moments inside a public area. There is designated senior housing, so an important factor with stepping the site down is to create universal access so everyone can enjoy the same experiences.
