A Message from Bruner/Cott Architects about COVID-19

updated February 3, 2022

A Message To Our Clients, Colleagues, and Friends About Covid-19:

Our Boston office is open, however, as a continued abundance of caution, the majority of Bruner/Cott employees are continuing to work remotely. We are requiring Covid vaccines and boosters in order to work in our studio. The health and wellness of our people, clients, and communities remains to be our top priority.

Our goal always is to maintain an open line of communication throughout this uncertain time and provide the same level of service and responsiveness associated with our firm. We have a robust technology infrastructure that fully supports virtual working throughout our practice with no impact on our delivery of design and service to our clients and partners. If we foresee this changing in any way, you will be notified in advance by our principals and project leaders.

Thank you,

Jason Forney, Dana Kelly, Jason Jewhurst
Partners and Principals, Bruner/Cott Architects

Shifting Gears

‘Shifting Gears’ by Henry Moss, AIA, LEED AP is a part of ArchitectureBoston’s spring theme — RENEW.

The article focuses on the historic Charles River Speedway complex as it gets set for a reawakening. The complex will be energized by a brewery and taproom (Notch), a full-service restaurant, small-format shops featuring local makers and artisans, food purveyors, social enterprises, and creative office space. The renewed Speedway site is now under construction, with the courtyard retail and taproom scheduled to open in the fall of 2020.

If winter is cold and dark, at least snowdrops and the promise of spring give us hope and hint of new life. The cycles of change—to cities and the natural world—can remind us that places have souls to lose. Emotions may be mixed. There is a quiet richness to the reworking of existing buildings that has crept into the psyche of the design professions as they resurrect past aesthetics, juxtaposed against new imageries and an overturning of previous uses. Those cycles of change reel from catastrophic to delicately nuanced, and architects try to counter one and orchestrate the other.
