Weston, MA Additions and Renovations

The existing Weston farm house and barn dates to 1906. It overlooked a large estate with planted fields meadows, a pond and formal gardens design by the office of Frederick Law Olmstead. The surrounding land has since been subdivided and developed into a suburban setting. The current owners demanded additions and renovations to intervene in two areas:

Expand the kitchen to include a new breakfast room, mudroom, secondary entrance, and summer dining terrace.

Expand the second floor master bedroom to include a sitting room, walk-in closets, and master bathroom.

While respecting the historic nature of the house, existing details were restored and replicated to exacting standards, with the aim to make the new work indistinguishable from the old. At the same time, 21st century technology was incorporated into the entire house making it energy efficient without any compromise of comfort or convenience.

The Office of Mark Armstrong Architect offers personal attention in the creation of design oriented and sustainable commercial and residential architecture in New England. Our projects vary from historic to modern, both in new structures and renovations. We are sensitive to the context of each project, including the style, the people, the site, and the city as the basis for the development of new spaces and places.

We work very closely with our clients to build effective personal relationships that we maintain throughout the process. We strive to understand each client’s unique set of goals for their property so we may successfully realize them; these criteria become the driving force of the design process, resulting in the uniqueness of each project. The final image of a building, like every other aspect of it, is the result of our dedication to create the appropriate response to the interests of the owner and the context in which the structure exists.

The firm is dedicated to “building green,” which means striving for energy conservation, environmental sustainability, and incorporation of non-toxic components into design. We can help you build responsibly whether you are just learning about “going green” or have the most advanced knowledge and goals. As a US Green Building Council member, OMA has access to extensive resources for consultants, and is committed to improving both your home’s environment, as well as the earth’s. We are equipped to pursue LEED Certification on new and significantly renovated projects.
