The Boston Harbor Island Alliance and the National Park Service wanted the first permanent structure on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to act as a beacon, attracting people to Boston’s Harbor Islands. In collaboration with Utile, SGH designed the structure; specified materials; and advised on all detailing, fabrication, and construction methods for the unusually-shaped roofs and the load-sensitive site.
