Malta Office Building

3t was hired by a doctor/attorney couple to design a building to house their new ophthalmology and law offices as well as provide future tenant spaces for lease.  The newly constructed building is located on the corner of Malta Avenue and Route 9 in a relatively open area with the parking lot on the opposite side. The massing of the building required a multi-façade design that allowed it to appear in scale and aligned with the vernacular of the smaller residential buildings nearby. A particular challenge of the project was to maximize the building’s footprint on a large site with bad soil conditions, which greatly restricted the building placement and the surrounding site work.
