Living a Sustainable LifestylePosted: Jan 2014 Posted by: Mats Inc.


During the building and development process of Maxwell’s Green, careful attention was paid to creating a truly green complex, including utilizing sustainable materials and adding environmentally-friendly features.

Centered on eco-friendly living, Maxwell’s Green is a high-end apartment complex in Somerville, Massachusetts, opened to residents in the fall of 2012.

Maxwell’s Green is touted as one of the first “Green” living residences in the Boston area.  Combining an urban feel with sustainable living, the complex draws city dwellers, green movement proponents and families alike.  The environment is smoke-free and offers a dog park, bike storage, electric recharging station, yoga studio and much more.

The Community Center

Maxwell’s Green’s mission is to create a sustainable neighborhood, with fellowship being of major significance.  At the heart of the complex, a large community activities center was built which includes an internet café, fitness center, movie theater, management offices, billiards room, gourmet chef’s kitchen, roof deck and so much more.

The Entrance

The activities center was designed with the tastes of their most-discerning residents in mind, from the entryway throughout the facility.  Upon entering the doors, Precision Inlay™ logo mats feature the Maxwell’s Green logo and emphasize the shared sense of community.  Superior quality Super Nop 52 matting with 20% post-consumer recycled content and Green Label Plus certification was chosen to prevent dirt and moisture from entering the building and potential damage to interior flooring surfaces.

Lobby and Corridors

The luxurious lobby highlights the building’s contemporary design with modern yet conservative décor and the natural beauty of Floorazzo™ Birch Tree.  A homogeneous resilient terrazzo floor covering, Floorazzo™ tiles provide incredible durability and an easy-to-maintain surface in highly trafficked areas including the lobby, stair landings and corridors.

The Fitness Center

The fitness center, furnished with state-of-the-art cardio and weight equipment, provides residents with a well-appointed gym right at home.  Custom Panorama tiles were selected for the gym floor to withstand the heavy equipment, resist scuffs, scratches and indentations and for the hygienic properties.  Produced with recycled rubber tires and gray speckles that match Maxwell’s Green’s branding, Panorama is the ideal eco-friendly solution for the exclusive and uncomplicated fitness space.

Rubber Flooring for Fitness

Since its opening, the activities center continues to grow as the hub of community activity hosting social club meetings, movie night parties, meet your neighbor events and more.
