Envoy Hotel, a refreshing addition to Boston’s waterfront, focuses on catering to “visitors” as opposed to tourists.

Phrases such as ‘this way forward’ and ‘on the way to everywhere’ ensured personality and activated the environment, while a limited grey and yellow color palette tied everything together.
