CHICAGO, IL - Chicago-based Mary Cook Associates (MCA), a national, award-winning commercial interior design firm, has completed the interiors of Hathon, a 190-unit multifamily rental community in Medway, Mass., a Boston submarket, and today released new photography of the completed project. MCA designed and programmed more than 65,000 square feet of interior and exterior common space at Hathon, drawing aesthetic inspiration from the surrounding community and meeting the diverse lifestyle needs of the development’s residents.
MCA worked closely with Hathon’s project team, including developers Toll Brothers Apartment Living and partner HQ Capital Real Estate and design architect Cube 3, to create a cohesive and holistic design vision for Hathon’s high-end interior spaces. Featuring contemporary furnishings, warm colors and textures and curated artwork and accessories throughout, the shared spaces offer a variety of options for work, play and relaxation and accentuate Hathon’s overall sense of community.
“As with all of our multifamily projects, we based our design for Hathon on a researched understanding of residents’ lifestyles and how those lifestyles shape what they expect from their living spaces,” said Mary Cook, founder and president of Mary Cook Associates. “Our design philosophy relies on psychographics – the values, attitudes, interests, and aspirations of the individuals who will ultimately inhabit and use these environments. This knowledge allows our team to create interiors that promote well-being, productivity and social engagement among the diverse group of residents who have chosen to call Hathon home.”
Designed with flexibility in mind, the amenities package at Hathon includes a clubroom with a double-sided fireplace, lounge seating and bar area; a catering kitchen and dining room for entertaining; a game room with billiards and flat-screen TVs; a coworking lounge; a mailroom lounge; state-of-the-art fitness center; and a conference room that can serve double duty as a private dining venue. The community’s landscaped courtyard is home to a resort-style pool deck; multiple seating areas with fire tables, grilling stations and outdoor televisions; and a children’s playground.
Hathon is located in the MetroWest region, one of the most sought-after submarkets within the Greater Boston area, on a 12.3-acre parcel along Main Street in Medway. This desirable location, nestled between Boston and Providence, R.I., offers easy accessibility to the Interstate 495 corridor and numerous employment hubs in the region.
“The interiors of Hathon speak to the area’s more traditional roots while offering the contemporary sophistication and comfort that residents appreciate,” added Cook. “It was rewarding for our team to recently revisit the property and see residents taking full advantage of the amenities and developing a club-like sense of community.”
