1021 Howard connects public places with maker spaces all contributing to the innovation in the life science community.

The three-story, 190,000-square-foot core and shell life-sciences facility is organized around a 13,000-square-foot public, accessible open space, which features an inner courtyard surrounded by the building complex on three sides.

A series of ground level potential ‘maker’ spaces with bi-fold door systems look into and open out immediately to the internal courtyard, and a street-facing corner cafe and outdoor terrace anchors the plaza entry. A connecting bridge above the courtyard provides climate protection to the main entry lobbies of the office buildings while also serving as a landmark gateway to the courtyard.

The building exterior is characterized by a sequence of alternate outdoor terraces that look out to both streets and contains brick, metal, and wood finishes that react to the community’s history and character. The landscape design, which was inspired by the historic marshes and their development, includes curving walls, garden spaces, and a digital interactive wall to accommodate a variety of outdoor meetings and activities along the street and in the courtyard.
