Once you have taken a seat inside the sleek setting, order one of the hot or cold plates. Dishes served daily here include Avocado Salad, BBQ Turkey Burger and Colorado Lamb Chops off the wood-burning grill. Wash it down with a Passion Fruit Pisco Sour.

3 Ways to Enliven a Bland Bathroom Design

Being a renter means you may not have as much freedom with interior design as you might as a homeowner. Despite this, there are a number of ways in which you can transform a space in a subtle, yet effective way. Our apartments push luxury to a new level and the bathrooms feature marble countertops, raised vessel sinks and clear glass shower enclosures.

If putting your own stamp on the space is a main priority, test out the following three bathroom design ideas:

  1. Matching Linens - Linens are a necessity, so turn them into a decorative feature by hanging over an old vintage ladder or folding in order of a rainbow’s colors.
  2. Temporary Wallpaper – Easy to apply and remove, temporary wallpaper is available in a spectrum of colors, styles and patterns. Buy online or visit a nearby store for wallpaper sold by the sheet, or consider wall stickers and wall decals!
  3. Fresh Flowers – Improve the air quality with a bunch of flowers. A flower arrangement on the window sill will add color and aesthetic appeal to the space.

The bathrooms inside the apartments at Altis at Kendall Square are designed with spa-inspired baths. Contact our leasing specialists to discuss decorating policies.

During the winter our fitness center gets busier, as fewer residents get their exercise fix in the outdoor swimming pool. Private and plush in appearance, it is a place where you can engage in bodybuilding, circuit training, power lifting and high-volume training. That’s not all though, because in addition to free weights you can test your high-intensity interval training skills with boxing and spin classes!
