Last week we published the list of the 17 projects that have been selected by the AIA as recipients of the 2009 Housing Awards. Some of these projects are remarkable, and in the next weeks, we will try to feature some of them, courtesy of the AIA.
Starting with a recipient of the Multifamily Award, the Fort Point Loft Condominiums built in Boston. Located on Congress Street in the Fort Point Historic District of Boston‚Äôs emerging waterfront, this 140,000 square foot project encompasses the adaptive reuse of two historic structures, the construction of a new building on an adjacent lot, and a three-story rooftop addition above all three structures. The program includes 99 condominium units [with 8 affordable units, including 3 artist live/work studios], two levels of restaurant/retail and a lobby/art gallery.

The new fa√ßade at 346 Congress takes cues from the restored fa√ßades at 348 and 354. Together, the three buildings relate to one another with a progressive series of window groupings, architectural details, colors, materials and proportional rhythms
