The Bedford Building

Boston, MA

Originally built in 1874, The Bedford Building in Boston, Massachusetts suffered various incompatible alterations until this award-winning restoration. Original details and design elements were restored while adding a modern retail atrium through the addition of a new eight-story glass wall between the wings of the U-shaped plan. This dramatic space serves as a unifying element which visually links the six floor levels and significantly increases the percentage of prime retail space.
