The Boston Society of Architects Award: 4380 Bronx Blvd

We are very happy to announce that 4380 Bronx Boulevard has received a Housing Design Award from the Boston Society of Architects.  This marks the 4th prize we’ve had the honor of receiving from the BSA, following the John C. Clancy Award for Socially Responsible Housing for Intervale Green and Louis Nine House, a Housing Design Award for True Colors Residence in 2012, and an Educational Facility Design Citation for New Settlement Community Campus in 2013.

ESKW/A is especially proud of this shelter, the design of which was headed up by Philip Jenkin, Kelly Kurlbaum, and Tatjana Sofkoska, with partner Andrew Knox.  The team was able to find creative ways to flood the renovated manufacturing facility with natural light, creating a bright and airy environment.

From the jury: “Through careful material selection, the designers have created a space that is extremely hardy but avoids the drab, heavy feel of many shelters. This is a very smart, restrained project with an admirable concept.”
