Urban Design Principles: North Bennet Street School and Residential Apartments

After analyzing our assigned site in the North End of Boston, each student was tasked with creating a 150,000 sq. ft. complex that would provide for both a burgeoning craft school and residential apartments. My design re-established the rhythm of the North End on the Exterior Facades, while creating a series of internal courtyards that start to break away at the established rhythm and introduce elements of surprise and syncopation.
