With South End's apartment boom in full swing, the Camden Gallery design and development team sought to create a project that stood out with a unique aesthetic that engaged Camden Road, which is quickly becoming the downtown of South End. To help reduce the scale of the project, the building was broken down into smaller pieces with different material palettes as well as utilizing recessed courtyards facing the streets which help to break up the mass of the structure. The building was set back from Camden Road and West Boulevard to create a wide pedestrian zone adjacent to the retail which is also used for outdoor seating for the restaurants and, as the project transitions from the busy Camden Road/West Boulevard corner, the building steps down in height to respect the size and scale of the neighboring buildings. The retail as well as the apartment leasing office are located on the ground level to drive public interaction and the large parking structure is hidden from view by the surrounding project. Modern forms, clean detailing and a mix of building materials help the building stand out on the street while still fitting in with the neighborhood. Since completion, restaurants and shopping have moved into the retail spaces and are thriving, making Camden Gallery a sought-after apartment community for residents looking to live in the heart of South End.
