Spotlight on The Batch Yard during 2015 Boston Design Week!

Have you heard about the Batch Yard and want to learn more about the building’s unique history and development (including the name origin)? Well now you have the perfect opportunity to do so!
On Wednesday, March 25th, The Batch Yard will be taking part in Boston Design Week, giving Boston-area residents the chance to check out our gorgeous community and learn about the building’s rich history and transformation. Running from 6-8pm, our free event, titled “An Architectural Journey of Reclamation, Reuse, and Rebirth”, will invite attendees on a self-guided tour of the former Charleston Chew Factory to see how the visionary reuse of existing spaces and materials led to this unmatched residential community.
In addition to experiencing the community’s various characteristics and amenities, the architects, artists, and designers who led the transformation will host a panel discussion and Q&A session to give guests a more in-depth background on the development. Speakers include:

– Linda Neshamkin (Neshamkin French Architects)
– Anda and Jenny French (French 2D Architects)
– Philip Koether (Philip Koether Architects)
– Bill Brown (Brown Sardina Landscape Architects)
– Ken Hagan (Sheskey Architects)
– Duncan Johnson (Artist)

The Batch Yard event is part of the 10-day Boston Design Week that will feature more than 80 events throughout the Boston area. The festival encourages the public to explore all aspects of design and increase awareness for the vital role the industry plays in our lives.
On your way out, make sure to grab a snack-sized Charleston Chew to sweeten your experience and have a piece of what made our unique community what it is today!
Please RSVP to if you plan to attend.
We look forward to seeing you there!
