This addition takes an existing under-developed façade and provides an aesthetic terminus to Blackstone Boulevard while creating a progressive image for the Lincoln school. The project reconfigures a "back door" and transforms it into a place of presence through an innovative and well-calibrated gradient façade of variable vertical fins and glazing while mostly respecting existing site setbacks with a slight arc forward. The interior renovation of the existing building is programmatically exciting and colorful; the utilitarian spaces allow for multiple functions and a dynamic interdependence of uses occurs in a limited square footage.
