A young architect transformed a tiny row house into a deceptively roomy family home in East Boston. The result is an urban oasis that sports not one, but two green roofs.
Originally built in 1846, this live/work brownstone today features a modern kitchen that dominates the second floor, opening onto the living area. Fixtures in the kitchen include 14 Series pendants by Omer Arbel for Bocci, and Charles Ghost stools by Philippe Starck for Kartell.
A Boston couple with a big extended family wanted to enlarge their brick neo-Georgian with an addition that would fit a generous kitchen and hangout space, all while avoiding superfluous detail. Or, as architecture firm NADAAA interpreted the brief, they wanted a “clean space where they can evacuate themselves from their stuff.”
30E Design transformed a hallway in a Boston brownstone from a “dumping ground for all the plumbing and utilities with an existing metal ductwork laundry chute” into a modern space that houses the laundry, furnace, and boiler.
Renovated for a mere $73 per square foot, this colorful flat was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's highly affordable Usonian houses.
