Located in what was once the grand hall of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the design team behind Grana sought to preserve and restore original features including the Terrazzo floors, frieze ceiling and crystal chandeliers. The grand brass federal reserve seal remains at the center of the room. The team kept prized elements and paired them with beautiful new fixtures and furnishings. The judges felt “the room is very balanced; there’s beauty in what they salvaged and the challenges they overcame were impressive.” Ultimately, the judges felt “the design came together nicely.”
