Managing Principal, DREAM Collaborative

DREAM provided full architectural services to MITIMCo (MIT Investment Management Company) for the renovation of 22-24 Magazine Street in Central Square, Cambridge. The 20,000 sf, four-story walk-up apartment building had suffered significant fire damage.

The renovation creates a new and efficient floor plan with 12 three- to four-bedroom units with an average size of 1,400 sf. The co-living apartments offer private bedrooms with a shared living area, which creates both a communal living experience and an economical housing option. The exterior design is respectful of the scale and context of the surrounding neighborhood.
