Adding on in Weston

Additions at each end of this historic Weston farm house will bring it into the 21st century.

Marty's Renovation

Marty’s is a Newton landmark known for its diverse selection of outstanding wines and gourmet specialty foods from around the world. This reconstruction of the storefront and renovation of the interior will breathe new life into the environment for shopping there. To be completed in several phases allowing continuous operation, the need for expansion required a prolonged effort to obtain the necessary permission from the city. We helped Marty attain the City’s Zoning Department special permit approval through hearings and committee working sessions.

Chestnut Hill Residence

Nearing complete design effort is this addition to a modern residence in Chestnut Hill. The southern facade is being rebuilt to open the interior to the views and light the exposure will afford. Passive solar energy conservation, paired with geothermal and green roof technologies will allow this home to expand while reducing energy consumption. This project is being done in association with Anne Snelling-Lee.
