Girard wins 2017 BSA Honor Award for Design Excellence

The Girard team is excited to win a 2017 Boston Society of Architects (BSA) Honor Award for Design Excellence! The program recognizes design excellence – informed by aesthetic, functional, contextual, sustainability, social, or other characteristics – for any project completed by Massachusetts architects, or any project built in Massachusetts designed by architects located anywhere in the world. This year’s jury chose 19 projects for the Honor Award from 119 submissions.

Utile and New Atlantic Development’s mixed-use apartment complex, named after American textile designer Alexander Girard, opened its door to tenants in October 2016. The 160-unit building totals approximately 240,000 square feet with 3,600 square feet of ground floor retail.

The team is looking forward to the BSA Design Awards Gala in February, where the level of Honor Award and jury comments will be revealed.
