What: The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s
Where: 161-185 Washington St., Brighton
Owner: Cabot, Cabot & Forbes and Peak Campus
Built: 2018-2021 

Owners of the Overlook at St. Gabriel’s commissioned 12 original artworks to complement the redevelopment of the 12-acre former church and monastery property. 

Selected and installed by Boston Art, the pieces include “Vertical Sunset,” an LED panel installation by Antlre Studio’s Hannah Sitzer and Paul Spitler that highlights the lobby’s lounge area with a changing-color neon wall. 

Developers worked with architect BH+A to restore St. Gabriel’s Monastery and Church, and CUBE3 to create three new construction buildings.

The project team also includes capital partner Blue Vista Capital Management and leasing agent and manager PeakMade Real Estate. 

They Said It: 

“The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s opted to work with Boston Art for their team’s well-known expertise in selecting the perfect pieces of art to complement the very unique spaces that we have at Overlook. It was very important to our team to thoughtfully pay homage to the beautiful historic elements – especially the restored stained glass – while updating the aesthetics to reflect the spaces’ modern uses.”
