Wonderful School Conversion in Boston

What was once a school is now an amazing condominium complex in Boston, Massachusetts. Designed by Touloukian Touloukian Inc. these gorgeous 16 residential loft-style condominiums are the perfect place to entertain family and friends.

The historic restoration of the Lawrence School, built in 1856, gives you a great opportunity to enjoy an eclectic design that combines both traditional and modern elements. The architects also brought a little of the industrial look with the uncovered ductwork that crossed the ceiling.

 

They chose to keep some of the old elements of the building and highlight its qualities by leaving exposed brick in the interior and using tall windows that bathe the house in natural light and allow breathtaking views as well. Moreover the apartments have an open floor design that makes the place feel bigger and more airy.

Amongst their many great features these spaces now have modern kitchens and bathrooms, new hardwood floors, painted steel decks and new elevator access. You can also see a neutral color palette which gives the space a soft, light feel, the furnishings being set off by the dark tones of the wood and brick.

The B Street Lofts are beautiful and inspiring places to raise your family. The architects re-used the building in a great way and found a way to give you something back.
