Design Intent/Solution
A neglected 1924 Mediterranean Revival duplex was brought back to life with a sustainable twist. To satisfy the new residents—three generations of the same family—a mix of remodeling and new components were added to the existing structure. The team worked within the guidelines of the Heritage Preservation Commission, and the building received a LEED Gold standard for “green” additions such as a geothermal system and foam insulation.

Judges’ Comments
The well-named “Past Meets Present” submission won over the judges with the historic integrity. Much of the original detail was left in tact while the team fully modernized the home with today’s comfort and conveniences and made it more energy efficient, all done within the challenges and guidelines of the Heritage Preservation Commission.
