Weston, MA Additions and Renovations

This Georgian manor house and carriage house needed updates to its kitchen, and an informal family dining and gathering space. The addition was integrated with the historic materials of the existing grand residence.

The addition resulted in a sheltering porte-cochere at the lower level where a new entrance, mud room, walk-in closets and a powder room create a convenient and comfortable every-day family entrance.

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.
