North End Waterfront

Boston, MA

Ten-foot-tall sliding room partitions were designed to occasionally sub-divide the guest room from the main space, allowing for uninterrupted and generous views of downtown Boston to the south and Boston Harbor to the north. A suspended platform gently peels away allowing light and air to filter down from the upper level skylights.

DISTINGUISHING DETAIL

The location of the loft on the waterfront, with its inherently stunning views, drove the open plan concept and creative problem solving for the division of space via sliding wall partitions.
