Brio is an infill residential project in a planned unit development in Hingham, MA known as the Launch at Hingham Shipyard.  The Launch is a mixed use community that occupies the former site of the Hingham Shipyard, a location where WWII destroyers were built.  The loft-like design of the project is inspired by the “Architecture of Work.”  Though this building is for living, its aesthetic is rooted in the architecture of industry, rather than the architecture of dwelling.  The façade is an elegant interpretation of the shipyard aesthetic, with a panelized façade that utilizes exposed fasteners to reflect the rivets of a battleship.  Human scaled elements on the lower floors respond to the pedestrian environment along Shipyard Drive.
