Boston, MA | Elkus Manfredi Architects Ltd.

7ink, the final building at the Ink Block development, offers Boston’s first luxury “micro-living” apartments in the South End with a focus on community, connection, and convenience. The building offers next-level amenities like curated social programming, shared co-working spaces, and shared bathrooms, offering a turn-key and inclusive environment for young professionals. The distinctive façade of the building, a tapestry of textural metals in restrained colorways, separates it from the other buildings and offers a semiotic nod to the unique nature of life inside.  The two metal surfaces- Ink Light and Ink Dark- feature Pure + FreeForm’s latest specular technology which allows for physical texture on the surface of the metal.  Additionally, the use of our clear coat basecoat offers a natural metallic glint to the metal, which in turn imparts a dynamic and warm façade.
