The Foundry

Cambridge, MA

Renovation meets innovation as this community hub for creativity and collaboration transforms a former industrial space.


The Project

From iron foundry for the Blake and Knowles Steam Pump Company to mid-century taxi barn to 1980s office space, this 110-year-old building has served many uses. After the City of Cambridge acquired this historic structure, it turned to CambridgeSeven to envision a bold transformation of the brick and timber-frame industrial building. Located at the intersection of the Kendall Square Innovation District and the East Cambridge neighborhood, the reimagined Foundry Building will be a nexus for visual and performing arts, entrepreneurship, technology and workforce education.
