60 Oxford Street, Harvard University
60 Oxford Street Lab/Classroom/Office Building
Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts
The award-winning 60 Oxford Street was the first building in Harvard University’s new North Yard Lab Campus, located between the University’s dense urban fabric and the historic Aggasiz neighborhood, calling for a building small enough to remain contextual but large enough to accommodate a large program of academic offices and laboratories. Clustering small volumes and exterior spaces at the northern edge of the site and larger volumes to the south achieves contextual continuity. Using energy and daylight modeling, carefully calibrated screen devices on the east and west facades prevent solar gain and glare in summer, but allow ambient light and solar gain in winter. Displacement ventilation, a roof garden, stormwater management, photocell-sensitive lighting and recycled material further contribute to the overall sustainable strategy. This project is LEED certified.
