Welcome to our 10 PO Square studio
In 1961, we opened our doors on Arrow Street in Cambridge, MA. After outgrowing that space, we joined the creative economy in Somerville’s Davis Square. Now, we’re in the heart of Boston’s Financial District, overlooking Post Office Square on one side of the office; Liberty Square and the Custom House on the other.
Half a century after we first opened our doors, our award-winning studio hosts a bevy of talented architects and designers working together to create satisfying places where people live, work, learn, and have fun. We also keep ourselves involved in the local community through teaching, mentoring, volunteering, and serving on a variety of local school and city planning boards.
