Boston Retractable Roof Project #4587 Project Description

When you’re in Boston, it’s time to enjoy great seafood! Legal Harborside is THE place to go for the best clam chowder in the region, delicious fresh seafood dishes and the harbor view.

The view from the bar rooftop

The view from the bar rooftop

On the first floor of the three-story, 20,000 sq. ft. restaurant, patrons find casual seafood, a raw oyster bar and a harborside fish market.  The second floor is for more intimate fine dining, private parties and business meetings. A four-season rooftop lounge overlooking the Boston Harbor is on the third floor. This setting with its excellent views may contribute almost as much to Legal Harborside’s rave reviews as the excellent seafood does.

The rooftop promenade deck is surrounded by folding glass doors and windows that can be open on great weather days. This area is topped by a 30’ by 60’ motorized skylight that opens with the touch of a button. A 60 ft. section of folding windows over a structural glass wall on one end, provides a  panoramic view overlooking the Seaport District.  This whole area is furnished with cushioned sofas, chairs and  bistro tables.  The solar-control glazing on the retractable skylight protects patrons from too much heat and sun even when the walls and doors are closed.

During the ArchitectureBoston Expo in 2012, Libart and NanaWall hosted a small gathering on the promenade deck. Expo attendees were able to experience this architectural gem while enjoying fresh seafood and cocktails in Legal Harborside’s party bar atmosphere.

While the the music was pumping and the walls and roof were lit with color-changing lights, the retractable skylight opened. And the 110 design and architectural professionals responded with their applause.
