Residence Addition in Provincetown, MA by Hammer Architects

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Hammer Architects

Located at the end of a shell-paved lane near Provincetown’s center, this comprehensive reconstruction of an 1820’s Colonial house with later additions, created a three-bedroom residence with a landscaped courtyard in a previously unused back yard. Great care was taken to blend the new construction with the scale and historic character of the surrounding homes.

In 1948 the Architect Nathaniel Saltonstall, one of the founders of Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, established The Colony Club of Wellfleet as a private club for art collectors. In 1952 he built several homes in the International Style for members on nearby Chequesett Neck. In 2008 the new owners of one of these, commissioned Hammer Architects to update and expand their house.

Admissions Center, Brandeis University in Waltham, MA by Charles Rose Architects Inc.

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Article source: Charles Rose Architects Inc.

Sited near the campus entrance, the admissions center is one of the first buildings that visitors see when entering Brandeis. First impressions were important to our clients when we began talks about design. Several questions became the basis of our work: How might the building accommodate large numbers of people and still feel intimate? How could the architecture impress—but not overwhelm—prospective students?

eBay House in Southborough, MA by Ruhl Walker Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

This husband and wife assumed they would never be able to afford the modern house of their dreams, but one day they discovered a surprisingly affordable lot and decided to see if they could do the impossible.  Many considered the heavily wooded lot ‘unbuildable’ because it was squeezed behind five suburban McMansions, it was dotted with granite outcroppings, and its irregular shape made it hard to imagine a conventional house; but the lot’s perceived ‘unbuildability’ made it affordable, and a small clearing at one end beckoned to the clients.

East 6th Street House in South Boston, MA by Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

This speculative development was built on a rear parcel with restricted views to the street, code restricted openings for windows, and less desirable views of the adjacent lots. The design re-directs the focus to an interior environment with a sun filled “skylight stair hall” and “rear light shaft” that brings natural light to all corners of each floor.

The Modern Theatre in Boston, MA by CBT Architect

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Located in a dense historic district in downtown Boston, Suffolk University embraced the once magnificent, but now abandoned, Modern Theatre as a way to meet the needs of its expanding theater program. Working with the City of Boston, the University agreed to restore the original masonry façade and replace the deteriorated theater with a new one, thus also completing the City’s final phase of a comprehensive multi-theater restoration endeavor. The reconstruction of the Modern Theatre revives a city landmark and the project is reinvigorating the neighborhood by bringing new uses to the site, while honoring and maintaining the building’s period look.
