Wellesley Colonial

Project Overview

This project involved substantial additions and renovations to a center-entry colonial reproduction residence. The challenges of the design were to nearly double the size without overwhelming the original house, to facilitate the relationship of the interior spaces to the steeply sloping but attractive rear yard, and to add scale elements and detail to enhance the exterior elevations. The construction process was quite complex, involving ledge removal, a multi-story steel structure, the coordination of exterior masonry cladding and sitework, and a high level of interior detail.
