About the Residences
At One Charlestown
Studio Luz is a one of four Consulting Architecture Firms working with a Project Lead firm, Stantec, to redevelop a 24-acre site in Boston’s historic neighborhood of Charlestown. This type of collaboration is certainly unusual – these types of projects are usually awarded to one large planning and design firm. By bringing together a group of architects with different design outlooks, Corcoran Jennison, SunCal and Stantec have seized the opportunity to create a design think tank of sorts for the master planning of this project.
