JAYMONT PROPERTIES / BOSTON, MA

125 SUMMER STREET  /  BOSTON

Retained by Jaymont to provide all architectural graphics and marketing materials for this 22 story office and retail complex in downtown Boston’s Financial District. 

The retention of all existing Summer Street building facades was a unique aspect of this project.

The project identity was applied to a variety of marketing materials.

A folder system containing  brochures, fact sheets and floor plans, was designed to focus all information for the leasing team and potential tenants.

99 SUMMER STREET  /  BOSTON

20 and 21 CUSTOM HOUSE STREET  /  BOSTON

In keeping with the effort to retain the existing storefronts, a sign system based on individual letters seemed best suited for maintaining the

“traditional” look of the new building.


Overhead sign boards, gold leaf window identification and traditional sill signs were the basic design elements for all  exterior retail signs.

Influenced by signs found in London’s traditional Gallerias, a standard double- faced frame and disc configuration was adapted for all interior retail tenants.

Retained by Jaymont to provide all architectural graphics and marketing materials for this 20 story office and retail complex in downtown Boston’s Financial District.

A street level retail component

was included.

An early site sign illustrated the project, its identity and the development team.

All interior signs for directionals, tenants and services were configured in a curved panel to reflect the buildings form.  All, including regulatory signs, were finished in polished brass.

 

Elevator doors were etched with a repeat pattern of the project symbol.

BC&CO was retained by the projects developers to design, research, build and install an exhibit titled “Boston’s Historic  Theaters” in the Galleria display area.  Pictured left is one of seven displays cases featuring a chair from “The Old Howard” theater.  Featured memorabilia, posters, photographs, playbills and documents are from the Harvard Theater Collection and the private collection of Fred MacLennan.

An elaborate multi-page brochure was designed as a leasing kit and sales tool.  It focused on the sites central location, views of the Boston skyline, local amenities, overlays showing transportation options and walking time and distances from the site.  The building cross-section was complimented with detailed floor plans for each level.

The design intent of the brochure was to highlight tenant views in all directions from the site.  Photos taken from the upper floor levels offered a 360 degree panorama of the downtown Boston skyline.


All photos for marketing materials were taken by members of the BC&CO design team.  

All tenant signs (12” x 14”) are etched polished stainless with paint filled text and numbers.
