Report on Current Work - December 20, 2013
A current project "on the boards" at Wolf Architects is the extensive renovation of a 1901 residence designed by architect H. Langford Warren. Warren had worked for H. H. Richardson, and was the founder and long-time dean of Harvard's architecture school, as recounted by Maureen Meister's book, Architecture and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Boston: Harvard's H. Langford Warren. (Warren also figures in her new book, Arts & Crafts Architecture: History and Heritage in New England.)
Besides restoring such distinctive features as leaded glass windows, our renovation introduces new cabinets with leaded-glass doors in a new library on the third floor, along with a new kitchen and new owners' bedroom suite.
We are working closely with r3 construction, inc., of Melrose, the general contractor.
