This eclectic and innovative design re-imagines how to live within a traditional 5-story Boston townhouse. Some floors were removed and the basement excavated to create new double-height spaces. A new stair animates the space with a collage of seemingly randomly stacked boxes that tumble between the two levels.
A small Greek Revival house was given a new foundation and a wing connecting to a new barn and embracing a protected garden. A long axial view from the front door through the new wing makes a small house seem bigger than it is.
This former U-shaped stable block surrounding a water-facing courtyard had been converted to a house many years ago. Over a period of fifteen years we designed three phases of further renovations, reorganizing the internal plan while retaining the antique charm of the original.
