Inspired by traditional design elements and a need for flexible, economical and efficient construction, the Harvard Commons project was designed to attract a variety of high end business users. Developed to meet the needs of tenants of various sizes, the building materials used were selected to compliment the colors and forms of the adjacent structures. The Harvard Commons is a multi-building complex.
Located on a busy corridor, the market dictated that a variety of tenant spaces were provided. With a desire to maintain a standard look, the architect needed to create several designs that not only attracted a variety of tenants, but also a building that could accommodate the different needs of the tenants.
Developing multiple footprints, the buildings, while similar in materials and general form, provided potential tenants with a variety of different sized spaces. With slight design modifications, buildings were developed for larger clients with a common shared entrance, or as a multi-tenant building, each with their own entrances. These variations provided the developer with the opportunity to attract a wide variety of end users.
