Solution

Inman Lofts, comprised of six townhouse units, combine energy-efficient urban living with elegant, versatile contemporary design. The townhouses are tailored for modern lifestyles with an open multi-level floor plan, custom designed oversized windows, a highly efficient three-zoned 16 SEER Energy Star air conditioning system, master bedroom suites with walk in closets and private pull in garages. The first and second floor levels are designed with generous 9 foot ceiling heights. The third floor features a cathedral ceiling that opens up to an exclusive private roof deck with Boston views.

Built on the site of a former one-story industrial building, the Lofts are tucked in between existing single-family and multi-family houses. Access to the site was limited to the front street side, requiring complex construction sequencing from the back of the site to the front. A steel frame hybrid with traditionally built and modularly built panelized wall construction, the building is finished with metal panels, clear finished cedar and fiber cement siding, providing a distinctly modern yet contextual addition to this eclectic urban site. Located on the Cambridge/Somerville line in Inman Square, the lofts are rated as a “Walker’s Paradise by Walk Score, with full access to public transit and bike and car-sharing options.
