Slow Living on Willow! Inspired by Scandinavian design and the Slow Spaces philosophy, 145 Willow consists of three units designed and newly constructed by the Cambridge architect-construction team Aamodt / Plumb. Their mission is to create homes that are good, clean, and fair. A simple palette of natural materials sourced locally and fairly. Bright, warm, and inviting spaces. Understated, modern, and intriguing exterior. Clean materials, design, and construction make the home healthy for people and the planet. Locally sourced, sustainably forested real cedar shingles. Electric appliances throughout, and solar hook-ups on the top floor. High-performance, energy-efficient construction using recycled no-VOC insulation. Fairly sourced materials and labor. The result is seen in the pride and craftsmanship of the work. The First-floor unit is ready to be converted for wheelchair accessibility in the future without structural changes (to be done by the buyer’s contractor after closing). Ramp access. Flush door thresholds. Removable base cabinets at key locations. Grab bar wall blocking. Accessible counter height and oven. Private covered balconies and windows line the south facade to capture the light and connect the spaces with the outside. Nature comes in the form of light, air, views of the sky, and green space. The balconies bring all of those to the heart of the home. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the private outdoor space is an extension of the living area and can be used and enjoyed throughout the year. Like a Zen garden or European courtyard, the low-maintenance gravel garden provides a medium for plants and trees with minimal watering and weeding. A quiet retreat for residents, this common area is designed for the common good by reducing the heat island effect and allowing stormwater to drain naturally. The homes offer a simpler and slower life that is healthy and sustainable, less reliant on cars, with a location on a side street near public transportation, dedicated bike paths, and nearby shops and restaurants. It is just steps from the new King Open School. A few blocks away are the restaurants, cafes, and bars of Inman, Union, and Kendall Square. The new Green Line station is at Union Square, along with a host of new developments, including Boynton Yards. Please use the contact form below to email us, and we will send a link for you to download the brochure attached for floor plans and more details. Exterior pictures are artistic renderings. The interior shots are of Unit 2. Construction is ongoing. See the Aamodt / Plumb site for more details.
UPDATE: The penthouse unit and parking spot are pending sale. The first- and second-floor units are available.
