Northeastern University

International Village
Boston, MA

 At the southern edge of the Northeastern campus in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, the International Village is a mixed use complex of dormitory, dining commons, retail and office space. The four buildings are organized around a new civic green that connects the station to the campus, acting as a campus gateway and connecting the main entrance to the MBTA Ruggles Station to the neighborhoods across Tremont Street. Pragmatic reasoning, simple detailing and spatial openness create an urban landscape that promotes community use. A bamboo roof top garden provides open space for the residents of the buildings. The garden is located on the second floor above the dining commons and is designed to have compelling visual interest from the garden level and from the view above. A series of linear planting beds run with the long axis of the roof top creating a variety of spaces for flexible use.
