"Historic Modern Preservation" project wins gold in the NAHB's 2017 Best in American Living Awards

We are pleased to share the news that the National Association of Homebuilders has awarded a Gold “Best in American Living Award” to our “Historic Modern Preservation” design.  Announced at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida, this honor recognizes our expansion and preservation of a now-historic International Style residence from 1939.

Our design for this addition reflects the massing and fenestration of the existing house, while it features contrasting siding, milled from reclaimed lumber, and rooftop photovoltaic panels.

The architect of the original structure, Edwin B. Goodell, AIA, was a pioneer of modernism in Massachusetts.  Our project team for this renovation included general contractor, King Builders, and Jonathan Keep, Landscape Architect.

The NAHB’s Best in American Living Awards program recognizes outstanding achievements in all sectors of residential construction from across the country, based on the principle that great homes start with great design.  Wolf Architects’ “Sustainable Urban Villa,” a Silver LEED-certified residence, previously won three Best in American Living Awards, including “Best in Green Remodeling” in 2015.
