Boston MA Contemporary Homes

For a streamlined, "less is more" home, a contemporary style is the way to go. Characterized by clean lines and a minimalist look, a contemporary home feels modern, fresh, and functional — while still feeling warm and welcoming.

Neutral colors and black and white are used in abundance as the backdrop for contemporary rooms. With a toned-down background, shapes and textures take the spotlight. Natural textiles such as linen and jute provide a welcome contrast to the simple geometric lines that make up a contemporary space. Architectural elements aim to connect the indoor and outdoor. Expansive windows, open floor plans, and lots of natural light are key characteristics of contemporary home design.

Loft residences are always popular throughout the city, but there is something captivating and extra special about Porter 156! Maybe it's the variety of floor plans and the tremendous selection of homes. Or maybe it is the immaculately maintained building, financially strong association and the convenient location. It could even be the fabulous mix of residents who appreciate the brilliant transformation of this former warehouse and the passion they have for both the property and the rapidly developing neighborhood that surrounds them. Whatever the reason for adoring this historical property, there is now one more tremendous reason….Loft 147! This loft home offers a wonderful mix of the best factory features including 14 foot ceilings, exposed brick, concrete beams/ceilings and wall to wall windows, while also incorporating stylish contemporary finishes and must have amenities including laundry, a/c, and parking.
