Designing new homes, restoring and renovating classic homes

Grove Street, Auburndale MA

New Construction

My clients had a one story cape on a very small lot in a Newton Historic District. For economic reason, it made more sense to build a new house than to renovate. The outcome of interfacing with the historic Commission was a building with all of the traditional exterior details of an “old” house but with an open floor plan and a program than responded to a sloping lot. Historic District Commission are difficult and I consider this modest home a wonderful outcome.
