Retail + Restaurant Street Activation | Boston, Massachusetts
Halvorson Design is working with Margulies Perruzzi Architects on Thomson Place, the restoration and repositioning of three former warehouse buildings to create a vibrant dining and retail destination in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood.
The design thoughtfully incorporates features reflecting the industrial heritage of the neighborhood, from original timber beams salvaged from the buildings’ renovations, which were transformed into seating for the new pedestrian plaza, to new metal stanchions that recall the nearby Summer Street Bridge spanning Fort Point Channel. Halvorson designed the new plaza, with plantings, paving, catenary lighting and a custom wooden screen. When renovations of the entire complex are complete, Thomson Place’s ground floor retail and plaza will serve as an amenity for the growing number of office tenants located in the three buildings above.
