Emerson College — Little Building Reimagining

Boston, Massachusetts
Client: Emerson College

Project Description

  • Originally constructed in 1917, the 12-story building had nine floors of office space, a two-story shopping arcade, post office, restaurants, and tunnels connecting it to the subway and neighboring theaters. Elkus Manfredi reprogrammed and reimagined the building into a mixed-use student residence for 750 students.
  • The repositioning effort included a major façade renovation and restoration that employed laser scanning and digital reconstructions, infill of the lightwells to create upper-story common rooms, and improvements for structural and MEP building systems.
  • This cornerstone of Emerson’s campus is home to 1,054 students and offers additional instructional and collaboration space as well as ground floor retail.

TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Pattern and texture are of critical design interest to me. More than mere surface treatment, they add depth, vitality, and meaning to architecture.”

Honor Merceret LEED AP

Architect, Elkus Manfredi Architects

Karen Sakey
TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

My favorite part of Ink Block is the strong vision for the site and the design concepts developed for each building. We took inspiration from the industrial history of the site, the printing presses from the Boston Herald factory, the cartoons from the newspaper funnies — the list goes on. Overall it was a fun, collaborative process with the client, and the concept drove our design to be a success!”
