Proto Kendall Square is a new, 200,000-square-foot, high-rise multifamily residential building in the up-and-coming technology hub of Cambridge. This development provides much-needed affordable housing for those employed in the area, while also providing a more active, pedestrian-friendly streetscape. A mix of decorative fixtures brightens the numerous common areas, while more traditional lighting is employed in the apartments, providing a nice luminous balance throughout the building.
