This project was both a renovation and an addition to

an already wonderful mid-century modernist house in

Belmont, MA. Originally built in the 1950’s, this true

architectural gem needed to be opened up to meet

the needs of the new owner. The goal was to add to

the original house in a complimentary way without

being overly nostalgic. Needing to provide bedrooms

and bathrooms to accommodate a family with 5

children, the walls were nearly completely removed

from the main living spaces, allowing the seamless

flow between, kitchen, dining and living. The rear

walls, made up almost entirely of glazing truly blurs

the line between outside and inside. New spaces,

like the 2nd floor office (with full 2 story deck) were

detailed using modernist concepts combined with

contemporary techniques and materials.
