Aileron: Artist Housing and Studios
East Boston, MA
Together with East-Boston-based NOAH (Neighborhood of Affordable Housing), Joy Street Design submitted a proposal to the City of Boston and was awarded the parcel on which Aileron Artist Housing and Studios will be located, at 127-159 Condor Street in East Boston. Our design for 41-units of affordable and market-rate housing, artist studios, gallery, sculpture courtyard, and work bar combines the traditional massing and rhythm of East Boston’s Eagle Hill neighborhood with a modern interpretation consistent with the programming needs of many artists working in wide-ranging styles of media in this specialized mixed-use development.
The Joy Street Design and NOAH team worked closely with the Eagle Hill neighborhood, local artists and DND (Department of Neighborhood Design) during the City’s zoning and Article 80 small project review processes to address programming, sustainability and accessibility needs, and to ensure that the project concept serves artist-residents as well as the community at large.
The proposal was developed in collaboration with Meander Studios. Renderings are by Meander Studios
