South Boston Maritime Park


The wedge-shaped site of the park creates a break in the otherwise continuous building edge of Northern Avenue facing Boston Harbor. The park is conceived as a single design with three distinct zones unified through a consistent material palette and design methodology. The largest zone at the northern end of the park provides a raised lawn panel with a continuous staircase lining Northern Avenue. Two large pergolas at the lawn's inner edge mark the transition to the central zone, creating a backdrop for events seen from Northern Avenue. The middle zone contains a low cafe structure and outdoor seating areas, while the southern end of the park is conceived as a more intimate area of benches and densely planted shade trees.
