TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

The design was inspired by the Emerald Necklace, a continuous chain of nine public parks intertwined within Boston’s Fenway neighborhood. The reception area invites the outdoors in with an explosion of lush green living walls accompanied by natural timber and floral jewel-tone materials. The custom bronze welcome desk, showcasing a raised map of the surrounding neighborhood, grounds the space.”
