SASSOON ACADEMY AND SCREEN
Location: Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
In Association with Neshamkin French Architects, Inc.
This six story, 90,000 square foot aesthetics university and dormitory, is a flagship for a new brand of aesthetics as elevated design. French 2D worked in association with Neshamkin French Architects on the Academy.
A major design focus for French 2D was on an undulating 3 story metal screen acting as both a diffused form of landmark signage and as a shield for the lounge spaces of the dormitory.
The project was taken through Permit Set (with Construction Documents and Permit Set led by Anda French) but is currently undergoing a change in client and program. A Redesign is anticipated.
